Legacy perhaps?

Legacy to most people means either ISA/VLB or the PCI legacy
compatibility mode so that would be confusing.

That's what this code is for (minus the MMIO accessors perhaps).

BTW if you moved to ioreadX you could get rid of almost all the readb/inb
special casing.

And burden the driver code with function calls ISO in/out instructions, at least on x86. It's somewhat arguable move.
