On cards with multiple controllers/one controller with multiple devices, 
except for the case where it is daisy chained (some budget cards use 
this el cheapo method), when we have multiple slots, we can route the TS 
between slots (specific hardware). This is in fact multiple devices on 
one board/chip

In such a case it would be nice if we can address the slots directly (we 
will be able to do many interesting things, like a router), since the 
slots are not directly linked (daisy chained). I mean this will enable 
us to leave options open.
