First please always send cleanup patches separately. I think you have more
than just the C99 conversion.

Were you even able to compile it? Since ip27 is ia64 only that would need
an IA64 cross compiler or a native ia64 machine.

It's probably better to focus on drivers only that actually build
on x86 :- see http://www.halobates.de/allyes for a compile log
showing all buildable files for x86-64 and i386.

Other than that the patch looks ok to me, but I haven't tried to
compile it either.
