I just noticed that these two are both a bit wrong, but they copy the
mistake that already exists in the 16 and 32 bit versions: If an
architecture overrides readq/writeq to have barriers but does not override
ioread64be/iowrite64be, this will lack the barriers and behave differently
from the little-endian version. I think the only affected architecture
is ARC, since ARM and ARM64 both override the big-endian accessors to
have the correct barriers, and all others don't use barriers at all.

Maybe you can add a patch before this one to replace the 16/32-bit accessors
with ones that do a

static inline void iowrite32be(u32 value, volatile void __iomem *addr)
{
writel(swab32(value), addr);
}

This will lead to a double-swap on architectures that don't override it,
but it will work correctly on all architectures without them having
to override the big-endian accessors.

Aside from that, the patch looks fine.
