Would it be possible to register a set of io ports and io memory locations 
with qemu and have all read write operations passed on to the host system? 

A quick look at the source shows me the two look-up tables
IOPortReadFunc *ioport_read_table[3][MAX_IOPORTS];
IOPortWriteFunc *ioport_write_table[3][MAX_IOPORTS];
Instead of the default function (which just generates debug output) it should 
be possible to register functions which call the ioport read/write commands 
on the host system (qemu would have to be launched as root to acquire io 

Same should work with io memory using the cpu_register_io_memory function.
Or am I far off base?

Reason is that I'd like to emulate some very old linux installations which 
access custom ISA hardware. For some of the ISA boards we have no source 
code, only binaries linked to a 2.0.something kernel...
