Right. I already did that here to verify the table. But since it involves
running a modified LCDd, it isn't really that convenient. Hence this poke to
get it upstream.

Probably so. But since this seems to be one that Hitachi themselves ship as a
standard ROM, I figured it would be common enough to be included in LCDd.
