    And it's not even about writecombine... Like writecombine is an
    attribute of the PCI host bridge on pmacs, not a pgprot, while
    cacheability issues cannot be always abstracted the same way on
    different archs. Actually, GUARDED could be used for !writecombine
    on ppc, but !GUARDED would allow prefetch and out of order IOs....
