No.  ioremapping() the range that goes past the end of the device is
just wrong.  But if you fix the offset as described below, that would be

by kerneldoc, I mean comments in the code, not in Documenation.

IOW, just add a comment before this function in the code, but make sure
it is of the format described in Documentation/kernel-doc-nano-HOWTO.txt.
