Hey,

this trick is, if you create the VA<->PA mapping at the kernel start (eg. see
how pxa_map_io() is replacedon some devices for instance), you then use the VA
address you specified and use __raw_{read,write}[b,w,l](). So use
__raw_{read,write}[b,w,l]() on drivers specific for certain device and use
{read,write}[b,w,l]() on ioremap()ed memory areas, aka. in common drivers.
Cheers
