I actually don't know of any others -- not that I'm an expert on the
range of devices that exist...

What's your feeling about drivers like amso1100, which don't
particularly care about atomicity, but just want to write a 64-bit
quantity conveniently? Should we require writeq()/__raw_writeq() for
all archs, and then define CONFIG_ARCH_HAS_64BIT_ATOMIC_MMIO_WRITES as

I see stuff like this is drivers/dma/ioatdma.c:

#if (BITS_PER_LONG == 64)
ioatdma_chan_write64(ioat_chan, IOAT_CHAINADDR_OFFSET, desc->phys);
(u32) desc->phys);
ioatdma_chan_write32(ioat_chan, IOAT_CHAINADDR_OFFSET_HIGH, 0);

and drivers/char/hpet.c:

#ifndef readq
static inline unsigned long long readq(void __iomem *addr)
return readl(addr) | (((unsigned long long)readl(addr + 4)) << 32LL);

#ifndef writeq
static inline void writeq(unsigned long long v, void __iomem *addr)
writel(v & 0xffffffff, addr);
writel(v >> 32, addr + 4);

and so on...

- R.
