Next, I shall:

 - Remove HAS_IOMEM and NO_IOMEM from kernel, firstly.

 - Try to make dummy IOMEM functions for score architecture.

 - Continue discussing with UML for it.


By the way: how about HAS_DMA? can we treat it as HAS_IOMEM (remove
it from kernel)? (for me, I guess we can not).


At present, I shall finish sending patch for removing IOMEM today, and
continue to welcome any ideas, suggestions or completions for IOMEM or
DMA.


Thanks.
