Correct. In linux-next, we have converted arch/sh to use
include/asm-generic/io.h, so arch/mips is now the last one
to not use it. 

I see that Jiaxun Yang posted a patch for this in May and it looked
like it should finally work [1], but there seems to still be something

I think the ARCH_HAS_DEBUG_VIRTUAL option is useful in
general, I'd rather move that into the common code if
we were to unify it.

For the moment, I'd suggest we leave the #define in place
here in order to finish the patch that starts using the
asm-generic header, and then we can look into using more
of the generic code.
