Bartlomiej,
I think the wmb() could removed as well. The outb/writeb functions are
required to be strongly ordered and I don't see anything else touching
DMA-able memory here.

BTW, care to remove "mask" usage from this function?
It's really not needed (can be replaced with #define).

I can create separate patches for both. Which git tree should I base
them against?

I think this wmb() can be removed too.

and this one as well.
