    Aglie. This scared me too, so I had another look. It seems P{V,C}IO
    areas are only accessed using VGA_{RD,WR}8 macros. NV_{RW,WR}08 are
    never actually used directly. So this patch makes at least usage
    consistent. VGA_{RD,WR}8 to access "I/O areas" in an ordered way. NV_*
    for the rest. Please apply.
