This is more of a QoI thing than anything, but you can specify multiple pointer type qualifiers on a declaration.

int * __sptr __sptr psp32;

This compiles without issue, and Intellisense does not bark about it.

int * __sptr __uptr psp32_2;

This also compiles without issue, but Intellisense will bark about it, claiming "__sptr and __uptr cannot both be specified."
