I did consider creating an include/linux/brcm/brcm_io.h header or
something like that but I am really not sure what the benefit would be.

As far as using _relaxed() this is absolutely correct because the bus
logic that connects the CPU to its on-chip registers is non re-ordering
non posted. That is true on the MIPS BE/LE and ARM when configured in LE
or BE.

We need the swapping for ARM because when running in ARM BE32, the data
is going to be in the host CPU endian, but the register bus is hard
wired to little endian.
