You can look at commit 72176dd0ad36c ("powerpc/mm: Use a helper for
finding pte bits mapping I/O area") to find similar conversion we did.

For ex:
 	__ioremap_at(phb_io_base_phys, (void *)ISA_IO_BASE,

gets replaced by

 	__ioremap_at(phb_io_base_phys, (void *)ISA_IO_BASE,
		     size, pgprot_val(pgprot_noncached(__pgprot(0))));

Now that gets mapped to the below hpte bits


Which get converted in htab_convert_pte_flags(unsigned long pteflags)

	if ((pteflags & _PAGE_CACHE_CTL ) == _PAGE_NON_IDEMPOTENT)
		rflags |= (HPTE_R_I | HPTE_R_G);

BTW we default add (HPTE_R_C | HPTE_R_M ).

Hence the final pte WIMG bits will be MIG. I guess that is what you
wanted ?

If that doesn't work, can you point me the current code so that I can
look at it and suggest correct alternative.
