I'm afraid I've no idea, since the musb code is somewhat obscure / tricky
in places I've done my best to not make any functional changes what so ever
in the entire set, chances are things will work fine with just readl / writel
but verifying that is hard, so I've gone for the better safe then sorry approach.
