Not likely.  MC is only a macro variable there.  I'd guess you want addr
set to something like &hpet->hpet_mc, but I don't know enough about hpet
to know for certain.  There are potentially multiple hpets in a system,
if they're not all guaranteed to have the same specs, perhaps there are
better choices that simply choosing the first.  Bob?
