The v2 address was used already before this patch, the patch just
(initially) tried to make things consistent to use the v2 bit width along
with the v2 address. That didn't work out. I certainly think there's room
for improvement, but perhaps (at least at present) of more academical
nature: If the v2 widths indicate a value wider than the v1 ones, then
we could still try to use the v2 field. The breakages reported so far
were only in the v2 widths being smaller than the v1 ones...
