alpha: identical
arc: identical
arm: identical
arm64: identical
cris: different        <==
frv: identical
hexagone: identical
ia64: different        <==
m32r: identical
m68k: identical
metag: identical
microblaze: identical
mips: identical
mn10300: different     <==
nios: identical
openrisc: different    <==
parisc: identical
riscv: identical
s390: identical
sh: identical
sparc: identical
tile: identical
um: rely on asm/generic
unicore32: identical
x86: identical
asm/generic (no mmu): identical

So 4 among all arches seems to have ioremap() and ioremap_nocache() 
being different.

Could we have a define set by the 4 arches on which ioremap() and 
ioremap_nocache() are different, something like
