The Peripheral Port Remap Register allows a region of memory to be specified as using the Peripheral interface, even when the MMU is disabled. Out of reset, the MMU is off and the memory type is defined as strongly ordered by default so we cannot make accesses on the peripheral port. (Normally the Peripheral port is used for Non-Shared, Device memory accesses only). Note that the The Peripheral Port Remap Register can also be used when the MMU is on, in that case the Remap takes the highest priority. This is described in the ARM1136/76 Technical Reference Manuals.
