   I think it's somewhat desirable to. Wouldn't it be better anyway to
   create a second command ("iowrite" or "regwrite" or something) that
   both does this and also does anything else that might be necessary to
   write to I/O registers safely, like flushing caches?

yeah - please invent a new commamd (maybe even "mach" command) to
do this, instead of changing how write works.
