    SubjectRe: Add sparse "__iomem" infrastructure to check PCI address usage

    While resuming adding __user annotations to the m68k-specific parts of the
    code, I stumbled on

    struct task_struct {
    unsigned long sas_ss_sp;

    If I'm not mistaken, sas_ss_sp is always a pointer to user stack space.
    Shouldn't it be changed to `void __user *sas_ss_sp', or is an
    unsigned long/void * change in generic code a too controversial change for
    making sparse happy?

    And I guess I can find a few more of these...

    In personal conversations with technical people, I call myself a hacker. But
    when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
