Ouch. I overlooked that during review. The patch looked so simple.

Since you're already changing the function prototype of ich_set_bbar,
can you make it static?

And another point about the coding style:
Can you use int bbar_offs instead of void *bbar_addr?
That way, it is easier to check directly which physmap region the
accesses correspond to.
