Why do you want them to be EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL? I would expect them to be
exported the same way pcim_iomap(), pcim_iomap_regions(), and ioremap_wc()
are exported, i.e., with EXPORT_SYMBOL.

Per Documentation/DocBook/kernel-hacking.tmpl, EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL "implies
that the function is considered an internal implementation issue, and not
really an interface." I don't think these are internal implementation
