So it would be the responsibility of the caller to fall back from
ioremap(..., CACHED) to ioremap(..., UNCACHED)?
I.e. all drivers using it should be changed...
All of the zero users we currently have will need to be changed, yes.
Note that I propose to leave ioremap(), aka ioremap_flags(..., 0) as
a default that always has to work, -EOPNOTSUP is only a valid return
value for non-default flaga.
