Please: what's the proper way to cast away the volatile & shut the
f*ing compiler up?

FWIW, the code is checking for hardware which the docs state may be
present, but which nobody has encountered in the wild & which FreeBSD
is (currently) unprepared to deal with. If anybody complains that
FreeBSD doesn't see the second PCI hose on a sable or lynx, that
"Found EXT_IO!!!!" printf in their dmesg will remind me of what's
going on. As a last resort, the check could be removed, but I'd
prefer to leave it there.
