    Subjectunsigned long ioremap()?
    	Hi,

    Since you're not allowed to use direct memory dereferencing on ioremapped
    areas, wouldn't it be more logical to let ioremap() return an unsigned long
    instead of a void *?

    Of course we then have to change readb() and friends to take a long as well,
    but at least we'd get compiler warnings when someone tries to do a direct
    dereference.

    Gr{oetje,eeting}s,

    when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
