Right, and from glancing at a couple of drivers you mentioned, if we
were to register a logic pio region for that legacy region, there does
not seem to be an easy place to fixup to use logic pio addresses (for
those devices). They use hardcoded values. However if all those drivers
were mips specific, you could fixup those drivers to use logic_pio
addresses today through some macro. But not sure on that.

So, going back to your change, I have a dilemma wondering whether you
should still register a logic pio region for the legacy region instead
of the carveout reservation, but ensure it is the first region
registered, such that logic pio address base is 0 and no translation is
required. At least then you have a region registered and it shows in
/proc/ioports, but then this whole thing becomes a bit fragile.

Maybe Arnd or Bjorn have an opinion on this.

Thanks,
John
