I was really referring to the existing !CONFIG_GENERIC_IOMAP && 
!CONFIG_INDIRECT_PIO use cases where there may be drivers (however unlikely)
that provide ioport_map an incorrect address which, due to the masking, gets
converted into a valid address. Returning NULL for these would result in new
run-time errors therefore it seemed safer to change this to support the new
"indirect IO" whilst not breaking existing bad drivers.

A more correct implementation would always return NULL if
port > IO_SPACE_LIMIT - it would fully align it with the CONFIG_GENERIC_IOMAP
implementation - in my view these two implementations should behave the same
with respect to error handling - at the moment they don't.

Thanks for the review.
