That certainly gets my vote: it should work around the bug correctly
and effectively without adding any complexity.

Though really the check ought to be in the sparc and sparc64
io_remap_pfn_range, which are the guilty parties giving shared write
access even when none has been asked for. But I guess it's too risky
to add failures or change behaviour down there at this stage.

Those "prot = __pgprot(pg_iobits);" lines - any idea why they ever
got inserted? I guess to add _PAGE_E in the sparc64 case, and
whatever the equivalent was in the earlier sparc cases?
Can they safely be corrected early in 2.6.16?
