Right, the patches from Niklas only went into linux-next so far,
and a few are missing (including the 8250 one I think), so -rc2
at the moment regresses, but that doesn't have the warning either.

The idea of my patch was to both fix the current linux-next
build regression and have something that works in the long
run, I didn't expect it to work by itself. Sorry that wasn't
clear from my description.

If the port number is high enough, the current code might end
up referencing a user space address, depending on mmap_min_addr,
which defaults to 4096.

Using POISON_POINTER_DELTA is clearly an improvement over that.

You may need to double-check, but I think for ppc64 we
can just unconditionally set _IO_BASE to ISA_IO_BASE
regardless of CONFIG_PCI. 3d5134ee8341 ("[POWERPC]
Rewrite IO allocation & mapping on powerpc64") ensured
that the I/O space is only ever mapped to this virtual
address, and the same method is used with the
asm-generic/io.h implementation on arm/arm64/loongarch/
m68k/riscv/xtensa. Using this would be both safer and
more efficient than the current version.
It should also not cause any regressions ;-)

Unfortunately, ppc32 never got that cleanup, so
POISON_POINTER_DELTA is probably still best until Niklas's
series is merged. You could set _ISA_MEM_BASE to the same
here for good measure.

[another side note: the non-zero PCI_DRAM_OFFSET looks
unnecessary as well now, apparently this was meant for
ibm cpc710 and ppc440 platforms that are no longer
