Hi, I noticed you added a bunch of register info to Hardware/Hollywood Registers. I noticed you mentioned 100J/121J in some of your commit logs, but not all. I want to make sure nothing you add is sourced from the recent BroadOn leaks. Getting register functionality documentation from legitimately obtained development hardware/software is kosher in my book (though not publishing or lifting code from the software itself, which is copyrighted). However, if any of it is sourced from the recent BroadOn leaks, please remove it and do not add any such information. Those leaks are (seemingly) the result of criminal action and we do not want them anywhere near Wiibrew.

Also, you don't need to rename registers to their "official" names or names derived from such. We gain nothing by using "official" register names. If a name is wrong/misleading just change it to something better, not necessarily the "official" name if you know it.

Please be thorough with your edit summaries in sourcing information, to avoid any misunderstandings.

All of my contributions to-date are from my own analysis of software that was actually published for the platform in the past and do not come from those leaks. All of those register names I added are referenced in those two discs that came from an RVT-H unit - 100J and 121J. I'll be more descriptive when summarizing future edits, thanks!
