I didn't look at the other patches on this series, but why it is needed
to deal with them on a separate way? Won't "PCI" and "HAS_IOPORT" be enough?

I mean, are there any architecture where HAVE_PCI=y and HAS_IOPORT=y
where LEGACY_PCI shall be "n"?

I would still avoid calling it LEGACY_PCI, as this sounds too generic.

I didn't read the PCI/PCIe specs, but I suspect that are a lot more
features that were/will be deprecated on PCI specs as time goes by.

So, I would, instead, use something like PCI_LEGACY_IO_SPACE or
HAVE_PCI_LEGACY_IO_SPACE, in order to let it clear what "legacy"
means.

Hmm... why this patch make SND_BT87X dependent on LEGACY_PCI?

I couldn't find any usage of inb/outb & friends on it:

$ grep -E '(inb|outb|inw|outw|inl|outl)\b' ./sound/pci/bt87x.c

It uses, instead, readl/writel:

static inline u32 snd_bt87x_readl(struct snd_bt87x *chip, u32 reg)
{
return readl(chip->mmio + reg);
}

static inline void snd_bt87x_writel(struct snd_bt87x *chip, u32 reg, u32 value)
{
writel(value, chip->mmio + reg);
}

I failed to see what makes it different from VIDEO_BT848 and
DVB_BT8XX drivers. They all support exactly the same chipset:
Brooktree/Conexant BT8xx. On those devices, depending on the exact
model, up to three separate interfaces are provided, each one with
its own Kconfig var:

- audio I/O (SND_BT87X);
- video I/O (VIDEO_BT848);
- MPEG-TS I/O (DVB_BT8XX).

Thanks,
Mauro
