Include sys/glibc-syscalls.h instead of inexistent sys/io.h on Android
This won't make raw I/O work magically but at least it would provide iopl() if some driver requires it and there is no better alternative currently. Corresponding to flashrom svn r1932. Signed-off-by: Stefan Tauner <> Acked-by: Carl-Daniel Hailfinger <>
