Thanks for the report. There are no other such uses in mach-actions, but
git-grep'ing for virt_to_phys in arch/arm/mach-* I spot at least one
other such usage in mach-oxnas:

arch/arm/mach-oxnas/platsmp.c:
writel(virt_to_phys(ox820_secondary_startup),

as well as this in mach-mvebu:

arch/arm/mach-mvebu/platsmp.c: writel(virt_to_phys(boot_addr), base +
MV98DX3236_CPU_RESUME_ADDR_REG);

and these in mach-at91:

arch/arm/mach-at91/pm.c: pm_bu->canary = virt_to_phys(&canary);
arch/arm/mach-at91/pm.c: pm_bu->resume = virt_to_phys(cpu_resume);

What exactly is the difference between the two macros that makes it
wrong despite apparently working? In particular I am wondering whether
the SoC/board vendors in CC need to fix it in their 3.10 trees, too.

In any case if this is a bug, I would rather fix it in a separate patch
for 4.13 and leave the name swap (this patch) for 4.14.

Regards,
Andreas
