This has nothing to do with the MMIO BAR, and shouldn't have any
influence on mmap()ing the PCI IO space. The mach64 driver doesn't use
PIO access. All this change was intended to do is to not explicitly
enable IO access because some Apple firmware ( Beige G3 is the main
offender IIRC ) doesn't configure it at all so it would overlap with
other devices' IO BARs. Symptoms would be several chips with IO BARs at
0, one legitimately, mach64 because the firmware didn't bother.
