I don't think that cast is necessary. All instances of PCI_IOBASE are
already defined to be void __iomem *.

Or at least they were until a few days ago. Commit f3dfddf7bd85 (ARM:
Define PCI_IOBASE as the base of virtual PCI IO space) introduces one
variant for ARM which isn't actually void __iomem *. I think what we
should do is standardize the type of PCI_IOBASE.

So how about we remove commit 3aad9c969c09 (asm-generic/io.h: Fix
ioport_map() for !CONFIG_GENERIC_IOMAP) and move the cast to void
__iomem * to Liviu's definition of PCI_IOBASE for ARM?
