    SubjectFix for asm/system.h
    Date
    Hello!
    While compiling a C++ program I noticed a little nastiness in asm/system.h
    (for Alpha of course). G++ always complained that an implicit cast would not
    be allowed with ANSI C++. OK I thought, then make it explicit ;)
    Here is a little diff... would someone please include this for the next
    kernel release?
    Thanks!
