Some of these he already posted. :)

According to Tarl, the virtual address is not supposed to respect  
#address-cells but to use as many (integer) cells as needed for -  
hardcoded - one (stack) cell. I would thus expect the virtual address  
to be 4 bytes on sparc32.

Maybe the physical address is wider than expected?
