Ok, you're right. My doc (1.14) says "Reverse channel addresses are seldom used
and may not be supported in hardware". And I really don't understand
the programmatic interface. ecpAFifo is said to be operational

to do a reverse channel address? Does the hardware simply stall? Or
do bad things happen?
