SubjectRe: [PATCH 05/27] asm-generic: add generic io.h
Date
io.h is more or less a straight copy from the mn10300 code,
so maybe David Howells is interested in this as well.

I don't think it can, but code is still more correct if it can handle it.
It could of course be written as

const u32 *buf;
for (buf = buffer; count; count--)
outl(*buf++, addr);

I can change the comment to what avr32 and m32r have:

arch/avr32/include/asm/io.h-/*
arch/avr32/include/asm/io.h: * ioremap - map bus memory into CPU space
arch/avr32/include/asm/io.h- * @offset bus address of the memory
arch/avr32/include/asm/io.h- * @size size of the resource to map
arch/avr32/include/asm/io.h- *
arch/avr32/include/asm/io.h: * ioremap performs a platform specific sequence of operations to make
arch/avr32/include/asm/io.h- * bus memory CPU accessible via the readb/.../writel functions and
arch/avr32/include/asm/io.h- * the other mmio helpers. The returned address is not guaranteed to
arch/avr32/include/asm/io.h- * be usable directly as a virtual address.
arch/avr32/include/asm/io.h- */
