Probably not. I just checked the third user (omap1), and it seems that one
has been broken since 2009 with 941132606c76 ("OMAP: Remove OMAP_IO_ADDRESS,
use OMAP1_IO_ADDRESS and OMAP2_IO_ADDRESS instead"), when Tony replaced
the inline omap_readl() with an extern function, thus breaking the
implementation of xip_irqpending() that must be inlined.

The other two have apparently been broken since 2011, by other patches
that also broke compilation.
