Well, I don't think that forcing this register to 0x7ff makes much sense, since you can write arbitrary masks to it, I rather think that this register always returns the same value that you've written to it (expect for the first read apparently).

I've changed the code to use Read+WriteWithoutInterception now, that should be fine until we encounter a program that needs this different value during the first read - then we've got to investigate a little bit more.

That does not work since we're storing function pointers in the table, and you can not specify parameters to a function pointer.
