For changing the asm-generic file in the arm64 tree,

Acked-by: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@arndb.de>

For all I can see, this should not conflict with the usage of the
same macros on RISC-V, though it does make add a significant
difference, so I'd like to see an Ack from the RISC-V folks as
well (added to Cc), or possibly a change to arch/riscv/include/asm/io.h
to do a corresponding change.

Arnd
