I don't really know whether it is necessary at this point. We discarded the
ioremap_uncached_accelerated() method, since the obvious alternative is now
available: ioremap_wc(). While ioremap_cacheable_cow() hasn't got one.
So if it was up to me, I'd leave it here. Anyway if the subsystem maintainers
think otherwise, I won't refuse to submit a patch with this method removal.
