Indeed, sorry for missing this. The generic implementation still makes sense for
include/asm-generic, but arm32 and arm64 must provide their own versions here.

An alternative would be to define

#define iowrite32be(v, p) iowrite32(swab32(v), p)

which is correct but can end up swapping multiple twice.
