Subject[2.6 patch] mark virt_to_bus/bus_to_virt as __deprecated on i386
virt_to_bus/bus_to_virt are long deprecated, mark them as __deprecated 
on i386.

Without such warnings people will never update their code and fix
Andrew's all*config PPC64 builds.

And yes, some of the drivers affected are maintained.

As an example, the only usage of bus_to_virt() in the infiniband code
was added in 2.6.17-rc1 (sic).

This patch increases the number of warnings shown during builds, but it
seems worth including it at least in -mm for making people aware of this
issue.
