iomap uses PIO_MASK to idenfiy ports within the I/O space range. The mips
code looks somewhat incomplete in the base kernel which is probably much
of the problem.
The basic idea is that ioread/iowrite and friends work generically
regardless of MMIO v PIO so you can just do
and not worry about anything.
Now if your platform doesn't have seperate IO space you could probably
implement iowrite/ioremap/ioport_map to be pretty much no-ops depending
upon how your PCI bars are encoded.
