IIRC I added the code in memory.c already in the very early days, when
there even was no support for TT emulation yet. So for the normal ST
emulation, it did not make much sense to really finish this work and so
the code was never completed.
Also there are some other parts of the code (e.g. the STRAM_ADDR macro)
which explicitely force an address to 24 bits, so these parts of the
code won't work with TT memory either (e.g. gemdos.c).
