I think the only remaining objections were about endianness.
Incidentally, the PHY driver was using readl()/writel(), so that should
be OK then. It might be a problem for big endian MIPS, but this
particular PHY IP is not available on MIPS. If it ever is used there,
then we may need to patch in something like this:

if (big endian MIPS)
iowrite32be(val, addr);
iowrite32(val, addr);

But for now, I think all is OK, so feel free to take it. I'll just
rework/resend the SATA driver, SATA binding, and ARM/dts updates.
