Please remove these kind of comments, they get out of date far too soon
and don't really help anything.  (Also everywhere else in the driver)

Please always include <linux/types.h>

Please only includ headers where you use them - that's mostly the .c
files unless you have lots of inlines or complex structures in the headers.

Please remove all these ifdefs.

This looks etirely superflous.

Please kill all these wrappers.

All your structs seems to be properly packed from a first sight.  Please
doble-check this and get rid of the attribute packed.

Bitfields should not be used for hardware datastructures ever.
Please convert this to explicit masking and shifting.

This is definitly a kernel data structure.  Shouldn't it be in atl1.h
instead of _hw.h?  Also does back really need to be a void pointer or
can it be something typed?

Please just use the values from the pci_dev insead of duplicating them.

Just kill all these wrappers.  Also you probably want to convert to
pci_iomap + ioread*/iowrite*.
