HalTranslateBusAddress does use these values though.  
HaliReferenceHandlerForBus definately needs to see a matching BusNumber.

I run qemu as:

qemu -isa -monitor stdio -hda /dev/hdb

QEMU PC emulator version 0.6.1, Copyright (c) 2003-2004 Fabrice Bellard

$ ls -ltr /usr/bin/qemu

Here's a simple experiment. Stand on a train track between two locomotives
which are pushing on you with equal force in opposite directions. You will
exhibit no net motion. None the less, you may soon begin to notice that
something important is happening.
