Yes, Jeff is right. Type checking in C is very useful.

So,
a) our register access function: bfin_read8/16/32 and bfin_write8/16/32
macros should be change to inline functions.
b) the "addr" should be defined as "void __iomem *"
c) in these functions it may use the sexy asm stuff

How do you think of this, Mike? And am I right, Jeff?
