I think this looks mostly OK, except for one misnamed parameter below. 
Unfortunately, the last non-coherent parisc was the 700 series and I no
longer own a box, so I can't test that part of it (I can fire up the
C360 to test it on a coherent arch).

These macro arguments need updating.  Since you changed the input from
hostdata->dev to hostdata, leaving the macro argument as dev is simply
misleading.  It needs to become hostdata or h.
