Ok, I implemented asm-generic/ioremap-nopost.h, I do not think we need
a CONFIG_PCI guard (kbuild has not barfed at it, yet), given that
blackfin and h8300 are !MMU and score selects NO_IOMEM.

Patch below is all arches squashed into one commit, I probably have
to split it one per arch which will make this a 50-patch series in


If I hear no complaints I will split patch above one per arch and
repost the series shortly (even though I think I should make two series
out of it, one asm-generic/ioremap-nopost.h boilerplate and second
ARM/ARM64 implementation + PCI drivers).
