|Summary||03444: Registered ram blocks registered with save state cannot be viewed with debugger|
This has been broken for quite a long time now.
One of the most useful features of the debugger used to be the ability to view memory not defined in the memory map, which had been allocated and registered to the save state system. The list would appear with all the other viewable regions.
For example, the NeoGeo video ram
neogeo_videoram = auto_alloc_array(machine, UINT16, 0x20000/2);
state_save_register_global_pointer(machine, neogeo_videoram, 0x20000/2);
there is now currently no way to view this ram while the driver is running making debugging significantly more difficult.

Seems like this was only working again for a few versions, and has been broken for ages again...
Trying to debug NeoGeo stuff right now, have no way to view the video ram.

|there is a similar issue with blocks registered within device_start in devices, they don't show up?|
