NAK.  Glibc uses these numeric sysctls to support ioperm emulation on ARM.
Therefore, removal of these numeric sysctls breaks that user interface:

  static int iobase_name[] = { CTL_BUS, BUS_ISA, BUS_ISA_PORT_BASE };
  static int ioshift_name[] = { CTL_BUS, BUS_ISA, BUS_ISA_PORT_SHIFT };
  if (! sysctl (iobase_name, 3, &io.io_base, &len, NULL, 0)
      && ! sysctl (ioshift_name, 3, &io.shift, &len, NULL, 0))
    {
      io.initdone = 1;
      return 0;
    }
...

Ack for this part.
