One of the goals of the series is to completely remove all mach/*.h headers
and place them somewhere else, ideally inaccessible to device drivers.

In case of mach/regs-ac97.h, the later patch "ASoC: pxa: ac97: use normal
MMIO accessors" passes the physical register base address as a platform
device resource that gets ioremapped in the ac97 driver, rather than
hardcoding the virtual address in a global header.

I agree that the exported function is still ugly, but I hope it's enough of
an improvement over the previous state that we can do it anyway.

If you have any better ideas though, I can give that a try, too.
One possibility would be a higher-level interface exported on top
of 'struct snd_ac97', but I could not figure out how to do this.
