True. Except for the knock sensor equipped cars which need to re-sync
the internal cylinder counter in order to pick the correct table
to check knock sensor readings against. If the counter didn't roll
over from 255 (cyl 1) to 0 (also cyl 1), there wouldn't be a problem.
[Phil, see code at EngineIsRunning (E7C9 in MAC12D, E7D9 in MAC11B)
and after the comment "; Get cylinder # and constrain to 0-4" with
reference to the Cylinder variable. (At E90F in MAC12D, E915 in MAC11B.)]
