    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?
