I don't think calling mmiob() directly would work. In order to make 
CONFIG_IA64_GENERIC work, the call to mmiob() needs to be underneath a
platform vector. Using ia64_platform_is() would also work but I think
a platform vector is cleaner.

A second reason for an arch_task_migrate() instead of a specific mmiob() is
to provide a hook for a future platform that require additional work
to be done when a task migrates.
