Thanks. I was aware only of MAINTAINERS file.

Maybe... this is area of BIOS ROM, not I/O. But I'm not sure about
cacheability.

Looking at recent kernel code (4.19 to be exact) ioremap ends in
__ioremap_caller with _PAGE_CACHE_MODE_UC_MINUS, while memremap would end
in __ioremap_caller with e.g. (depending on flags) _PAGE_CACHE_MODE_WT.

Unfortunately now I have rare access to this hardware (FS Amilo) to
test.
