A dummy master is necessary in any system which has a slave that can give SPLIT transfer responses. The dummy master is required so that something can be granted the bus if all the other masters have received a SPLIT response.
No logic is required for the dummy master and it can be implemented by simply tying off the inputs to the master address/control multiplexer for the dummy master position. The requirements for a dummy master are that HTRANS is driven to IDLE, HLOCK is driven low, and all other master outputs are driven to legal values.
