Well, it depends on how the register is implemented in hardware. Unused
bits can either be tied to 0, or to 1 or not be implemented at all - in
that case, the result depends on the traffic that has been sent via the
bus before. We've seen that with some registers on the ST already,
especially the ST shift mode register if I remember clearly.

So for emulating unused bits properly, you would need to test them on a
real Falcon to see whether they are 0 or 1 or "random".
