    This commit is wrong, so I will keep the revert. It should never have
    used "unlikely()" and if it ever does trigger, resources are left
    grabbed.

    Given there are no users for this code around, I'll just revert this and
    leave it "as is" as the odds that ioremap() will ever fail here is
    horrendiously low.

    thanks,
