with v3 we can potentially have n:m mappings for all modules. is a
single byte like we have it in v2 still appropriate?

Or should we just leave the mechanism unchanged for now despite we could
do it more complex^Wflexible? 

We should document this in the design paper. I remember I added some
hack to lxbios to make switching between normal and fallback work.
