    SubjectFix for asm/system.h
    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?

    *** 292,300 ****
    switch (size) {
    case 4:
    ! return xchg_u32(ptr, x);
    case 8:
    ! return xchg_u64(ptr, x);
    return x;
    --- 292,300 ----
    switch (size) {
    case 4:
    ! return xchg_u32((volatile int *)ptr, x);
    case 8:
    ! return xchg_u64((volatile long *)ptr, x);
