Oh this wasn't meant as adding a task for you just a FYI. I'm already
experimenting with this and plan to possibly send a patch that fixes
the case of remapping system RAM once your series has landed. The thing
is that memremap() is quite tricky for us whichever way you look at
it. 

We don't have real MMIO on s390x and thus using memremap() for PCI MMIO
spaces doesn't really work as the void* returned can still only be
accessed using ioread()/iowrite() because only our special PCI access
instructions work on the pseudo-MMIO addresses (with PCI MIO)
respectively the address cookies. Obviously void* and memremap() really
isn't the right tool if you need to use ioread()/iowrite() to access it
and can't treat it as memory though.

Thanks,
Niklas
