Well, I think they are only wrong in the way that they ignore
endianess. You can fix that by changing them to be identical
to the in_le/in_be families.

However, I would also recommend changing your __raw_* accessors
to inline assembly functions rather than pointer dereferences,
because we have had problems in the past where gcc (when faced
with undefined C) silently turned 32-bit accesses into multiples
of byte accesses, which can be fatal for MMIO. The asm-generic
version obviously cannot get this right.

The PCI I/O space handling, as mentioned, is completely broken
on microblaze, and you can either use the approach from asm-generic
when you set PCI_IOBASE match your isa_io_base.
