Thanks for the hint. I'm sorry I don't know how pgprot_noncached() works.

I tried:

1) range.size, pgprot_noncached()

2) range.size, pgprot_val(pgprot_noncached(__pgprot(0))));

3) range.size, pgprot_val(pgprot_noncached_wc(__pgprot(0))));

Unfortunately without any success.

I'd like to modify the following code for the ATi SB600 southbridge chipset:

/* Workaround for lack of device tree */
                        if (primary) {
                                __ioremap_at(range.cpu_addr, (void 
                                range.size, _PAGE_NO_CACHE|_PAGE_GUARDED);
                                hose->io_base_virt = (void *)_IO_BASE;
                                printk("Initialised io_base_virt 0x%lx 
_IO_BASE 0x%llx\n", (unsigned long)hose->io_base_virt, (unsigned long 

This workaround works with the kernel 4.6 final. After the commit 
powerpc-4.7-1, the computer doesn't boot anymore.

Last message in the CFE firmware:

Booting Linux via __start()...
