Hello Maurice.

do {} while (0) macros should not use a trailing semicolon.
This allows the macro to be used in single statement if/else.

for example:

#define foo(a, b, c) \
do { \
x = (a); \
y = (b); \
z = (c); \
} while (0)

use:

if (test)
foo(1, 2, 3);
else
foo(4, 5, 6);

etc.

Also, there's a lot of uppercase and variable reuse in this macro
that makes it a bit difficult to parse and verify.

A couple more defines or a static inline could help.

Perhaps something like:

static inline void pci9111_fifo_reset(void)
{
unsigned long addr = PCI9111_IO_BASE + PCI9111_REGISTER_INTERRUPT_CONTROL;

outb(PCI9111_FFEN_SET_FIFO_ENABLE, addr);
outb(PCI9111_FFEN_SET_FIFO_DISABLE, addr);
outb(PCI9111_FFEN_SET_FIFO_ENABLE, addr);
}
