Euh, I don't think this is the correct fix.

CONFIG_HAS_IOMEM is apparently used in two meanings:
1. The architecture has support for memory mapped I/O (s390 obviously
hasn't)
2. The architecture has ISA/PCI-style memory mapped I/O (readb() and
friends)

check_signature() falls under the second category.

Setting NO_IOMEM on m68k will make us loose some drivers (e.g.
drivers/video/Kconfig depends on HAS_IOMEM).

Apart from many Kconfig dependencies on HAS_IOMEM, CONFIG_HAS_IOMEM is
further only used to control the build of lib/iomap_copy.c, which
doesn't use readb() and friends, but the __raw*() operations.
