So I've found:

There, the res->start may be either of the following:
AR531X_WLAN0 .. 0x18000000
AR531X_WLAN1 .. 0x18500000
AR2315_WLAN0 .. 0xB0000000

I suppose you have the 3rd otherwise it should die without ORing KSEG1?

Or maybe MIPS guys will correct me? (The problem is that ioremap of one
of the addresses above kills the box. If Nikolaj removes the ioremap and
uses the address directly, it works for him. I'm saying it will die for
the first 2 addresses if we remove ioremap completely -- from what I
found in MIPS specs.)

I _think_ there should be (instead of ioremap):
sc->iobase = (void __iomem *)KSEG1ADDR(res->start);

Then we do readl(sc->iobase) et al. in ath5k.
