Opposite of "C00000 is Fast RAM"?

Is there any configuration option that would act as the opposite of the "C00000 is Fast RAM" setting, to force 600000+ RAM to operate at slow/bogo/trapdoor RAM speed?

Reasoning: I'm trying to proper simulate the actual performance characteristics of the ICD AdRAM 540, which allowed adding 4MB of slow-fast RAM in the trapdoor slot of the A500. It was (partially) mapped as fast RAM, but had the performance penalty of all trapdoor memory.

Bleh. Sounds like hardware designers should have known that this was a stupid idea..

Anyway, "Slow" flag added to RAM panel. ("Slow" = chip ram timing but not chip ram capable)

EDIT: Advanced chipset "C00000 is Fast RAM" is also gone. It is not needed anymore.

Oh, ICD knew...but were semi-obsessed at the time with internal-only A500 expansion taken to unholy levels. Not sure any other company managed to cram 6MB into an A500 trapdoor solution. LOL
