The PCI address of physical memory address 0 (which should also be
kernel virtual address 0xc0000000). If physical memory does not start at

The kernel virtual address to which you have mapped ISA memory space.

The kernel virtual address to which you have mapped IO space. This is
used by insb and similar instructions.

For more details of these, read include/asm-ppc/io.h
