Details

Summary

This removes the dependency on /dev/io, which cannot be used in jails.

PR: 251046

Test Plan

I passed a realtek NIC through to a FreeBSD VM and configured hw.re.prefer_iomap=1
in the guest, to make it use I/O port BARs. I did some quick tests with iperf through the
passed-through NIC.
