It seems that MMIO_UPPER_LIMIT (and some cases previously with IO_SPACE_LIMIT)
are not always being treated as masks - therefore ioport_map should be updated
to use the comparison operator and reject anything above MMIO_UPPER_LIMIT.

In any case modifying the address if it doesn't fit within the MMIO_UPPER_LIMIT
(or IO_SPACE_LIMIT previously) will only break something further down the code
path if the address was wrong in the first place. This function should probably
work in the same was as GENERIC_IOMAP (given it shares the same name) whereby
NULL is returned if the port is incorrect.

I will prepare a patch.
