The preferred form for modification has all of the hex constants
replaced with preprocessor defines that give you useful register names.
It's fairly easy to show that this is the case - the code is plainly
derived from NVidia's earlier (Xfree 3.3 era) driver and their open
source SDK, which did have useful symbolic constant names.
