Ah ok good to know.

Looking further there is also an inb_p() in
drivers/acpi/processor_idle.c:acpi_idle_bm_check(). That does look x86
specific though. There are a few more in the same file in
acpi_idle_do_entry() and acpi_idle_play_dead() they both look like
alternative mechanisms though interestingly one of the sites checks for
ACPI_CSTATE_SYSTEMIO while the other doesn't. Also it seems to me that
processor_idle.c is compiled when ACPI_PROCESSOR_IDLE is set which is
selected by ACPI_PROCESSOR which gets set for ARM64 as well.

Then there is a few more calls in drivers/acpi/osl.c which currently
gets compiled on all architectures as well.

I think we could ifdef all of these as it seems there are always
alternative paths. But I'm not sure if that makes sense if ACPI only
works on platforms with HAS_IOPORT anyway. From a cursory look it seems
even the not yet merged LoongArch would set HAS_IOPORT.

What do you think?

I personally think it makes sense to have an explicit HAS_IOPORT
dependency even if it's already selected by all architectures setting
ARCH_SUPPORTS_ACPI adding it there as a dependency at the very least
documents its, currently unconditional, compile-time dependency.
