I think it is OK to just use the writeX here. These are in fact an
inlined function built out of a macro. The inlined function does nearly
what you have written down here and in contrast to the ARM version omits
the memory barrier.
The main difference between __raw_ access and the writeX/readX access
for AVR32 is this little __swizzle_addr_. It takes the configuration of
SMC (8/16/32 bit access) into account which would be omitted when we
switch to __raw_ accessors here. This would be a major change if one
used the writeX/readX accessors before and switched the SMC to something
different than 32 Bit access.
