    Are there any 32-bit platforms with writeq()? A quick grep suggests not.

    Are there any 64-bit platforms where writeq() allows the MMIO to be
    split into multiple cycles from the target device's view? I've been
    coding assuming that at least no other MMIO writes will reach the device
    in the middle of a writeq().

    - R.
