Each 2MW memory card occupies four slots of address space (each slot
being 512K); only one is determined by the slot the car resides in,
the rest have to be assigned dynamically by the FEP from the set of
free slots. When it gets to the last bank of the second card, it
has run out of free slots, and so that 512K will be inaccessible.
A 3640 is an OBS, and only has half the slot addressibility of an NBS
(e.g. 3620 or 3650).
