This applies against mach-omap1/include/mach/hardware.h
with some fuzz so no issues there.

But I think we should not apply it as these are physical
addresses, not virtual addresses for omap1.

We have IOMEM already in use for omap_read/write because of:


I think the right solution is to eventually get rid of
omap_read/write for omap1 also and replace them with ioremap
+ readl/writel.

Or am I missing something?
