    SubjectPATCH physical address typedef

    Attached is a patch against 2.3.23 pre5 which adds 'kphysaddr_t' type.

    The idea is to migrate code to using this type to store physical
    addresses. This will help flag problematic iomap code via a warning --
    since a lot of code uses char* instead of long to store physical
    addresses. Also, IMHO it would be nice if the source code told us it
    was storing a physical address, via the C type system. (same idea as
    kdev_t, etc.)
