Don't use <machine/pio.h> it was decreed that this is a kernel-private
iterface.  Additionally, it'd probably be better to use libi386/libx86_64
and (i386|x86_64)_iopl() rather than doing the syscall yourself.

However, I'm not sure if this will fix your problem.

Also, NetBSD has a FreeBSD-like atppc/ppbus driver similar to that in
FreeBSD, if that's of any use to you.
