So, thanks to Mark Rivers for telling me that EPICS will overwrite VAL with the integer value in RVAL unless my device support routine returns 2. (medm & probe *were* reading from VAL, but it had been written over after my routine returned 0.)

But this question still remains:

Why is RVAL only an int type if it is intended to hold the
raw data from hardware?
