I'm not so sure.  There are implications when using the __raw_*()
routines.

In particular, using __raw_{read,write}l() also means that the usual
necessary I/O memory barriers are not being performed.

There are therefore no ordering guarantees between __raw_*() and other
I/O or memory accesses whatsoever.
