Looks good to me - I vaguely wondered if it would make sense to use
an endian conversion in the word case, but as we have possible odd
numbers of bytes that gets fiddly.

I wonder what devices do if you do a word read beyond their end address?
Perhaps in odd cases we should always fall back to byte reads?

Add something here about addressing assumptions. You get odd devices which
will give bulk reads of addresses not mapped to a nice linear region when
you do byte reads.
