    > ioremap() also is uncachable today. was using cacheable mapping on ia64 until this commit in 2007:

    I stopped paying close attention on ia64 in 2006 for the most part.
    It's always been uncacheable on parisc.

    After finding willy's patch (March 2006) on, I remember the
    discussion around changing the behavior of ioremap() to be uncached:

    And I have to agree with willy/alan, pci_iomap() is already doing this.

    However, pci_iomap() isn't quite right either:
    if (flags & IORESOURCE_MEM) {
    return ioremap(start, len);
    return ioremap_nocache(start, len);

    I expect it needs to use ioremap_cache() instead of ioremap().
    One line patch below fixes that. Build-tested on x86 only.

    pci_iomap() is already doing this. See lib/iomap.c:pci_iomap().
