This patch marks pages tainted by PIO IDE as dirty, instead of trying
to flush them right away. This

a) fixes PIO IDE for systems without dcache aliases (which lacked
   the necessary cache flush so far)
b) improves performance a bit, since some pages may never need a
   cache flush
c) obsoletes local_flush_data_cache_page

Changed to avoid some compiler warnings.
