Right, makes sense. I had suggested to go the easy way and assume that
each architecture would select HAS_IOPORT if any configuration supports
it, but it looks like for m68k there is a clearly defined set of platforms that
do.

Note that for the platforms that don't set any of the three symbols, the
fallback makes inb() an alias for readb() with a different argument type,
so there may be m68k specific drivers that rely on this, but those would
already be broken if ATARI_ROM_ISA is set.
