I forgot that some of you may not have the Rubini book and hence didn't
get what I meant by my previous message.

I meant:
Let's have an architecture-specific type called port_t that is typedefed
to the appropriate type (unsigned short on i386, unsigned long on alpha
etc) and redeclare all the in/out stuff in io.h to use port_t (as well as
check all the (million?) lines of .c files to make sure they use the
proper declaration. This looks a tiny bit cleaner than the current state.

Any comments?
