Correct. On all the architectures you care about (most importantly, not
x86), readl and ioread32 are defined to have the same semantics. There
are a few exceptions where ioread32 provides a wrapper for PCI
PIO accesses that are not memory mapped, making ioread32 slightly
slower than readl, but for all practical purposes you don't have
to worry about it ;-)
