I agree with you since there is not much PCI specific in the ioremap
implementation we are introducing (and it may be used more by other
subsystems too), I suspect it is all about finding a reasonable
ioremap_ naming extension (ioremap_nowb() ?).

On the other hand having an explicit pci_remap_cfgspace() interface
would simplify preventing drivers to sneak into the kernel with the
wrong ioremap API for config space (even though when all existing
ones are converted new drivers would just be based on existing ones
so it should be fine).

Suggestions welcome.

Thanks !
Lorenzo
