I think there are two separate issues here:

1. Semantics of operations in io-64-nonatomic-lo-hi.h, io-64-nonatomic-hi-lo.h

Logan, you mentioned the following (which unfortunately I somehow missed):
The lo_hi/hi_lo functions seem to always refer to the data being written
or read not to the address operated on.

OTOH, initial commit that added asm-generic/io-64-nonatomic-lo-hi.h and
asm-generic/io-64-nonatomic-hi-lo.h mentions:
797a796a13df6 ("asm-generic: architecture independent readq/writeq for 32bit
- <asm-generic/io-64-nonatomic-lo-hi.h> provides non-atomic readq/ writeq with
the order of lower address -> higher address
- <asm-generic/io-64-nonatomic-hi-lo.h> provides non-atomic readq/ writeq with
reversed order

I think we should keep the initial semantics when adding support for
io{read|write}64, i.e. "lo" and "hi" to refer to address and not to value.

Actually this is the semantics intended for the CAAM patch, see the note at the
end of the commit message that refers to addresses, not values:
To be consistent with CAAM engine HW spec: in case of 64-bit registers,
irrespective of device endianness, the lower address should be read from
/ written to first, followed by the upper address.

2. CAAM driver I/O accessors for i.MX case

CAAM block in some i.MX parts has broken endianness for 64b registers.
For e.g. for i.MX6S/SL/D/Q even though CAAM is little endian, BARs for I/O rings
have to be programmed as:
I/O Ring BAR+0: unused
I/O Ring BAR+4: IOVA (32-bit little endian)
when the proper layout (for a 64b register) would have been to program IOVA at

This explains why I/O accessors in CAAM driver handle things differently in case

Since this quirk cannot be accommodated in generic fashion, code dealing with
caam_imx has to stay.
