Hello all,

is there any support for 64-bit MMIO?

I'm trying to emulate 16750-like UART by adopting current 16550A emulation.
The problem is that my (MIPS) hardware is 64-bit, and native software
issues 64-bit load/stores (LD/SD) to talk with all hardware registers,
which are all 64-bit too (for UART case, only 8 lower bits are used, BTW).
As I can see, qemu splits 64-bit access into two 32-bit back-to-back ones,
but this gives catastrophic results if host and guest has different
byte order - i.e. write 0x0000000000000001 to 0x100 gives write 0x00000000
to 0x100 and 0x10000000 to 0x104 because 64-bit quantities are swapped within
32-bit halves.
