I can guess the result.

Linux/ppc64 looks strange invention to me. As you know IO base addresses
are limited to 32 bit in PCI. And, btw, 32 bits seems to work just fine
here as PPC is defined from the driver as using normal IO. But, IIRC, the
strange Linux/PPC invention only supports MMIO. :-)
If you want to play with _explicit_ MMIO, you just have to remove a couple
of line from sym53c8xx.h. Here they are:
* Use normal IO if configured. Forced for alpha and powerpc.
* Powerpc fails copying to on-chip RAM using memcpy_toio().
* Forced to MMIO for sparc.
- #define SYM_CONF_IOMAPPED
- #define SYM_OPT_NO_BUS_MEMORY_MAPPING
Btw, I cannot guess the result here. You may want to really let me know
this time. :)
I cannot apply your patch as it is, since I want the driver to distinguish
between kernel fake cookies associated with base addresses and actual
values of those registers. This is needed, since some of these values must
be known from SCSI SCRIPTS and thus must fit the _reality_ and not any
kernel developpers' dream, could be the greatest ones:).
Thanks, anyway, for reporting this problem.
