    SubjectRe: 2.6.23-rc8-mm1
    Hi Andy,

    One the patch you created in -mm is causing compile warning.
    Here is the fix. Please verify.


    arch/powerpc/mm/init_64.c: In function `vmemmap_populated':
    arch/powerpc/mm/init_64.c:211: warning: passing arg 1 of `vmemmap_section_start' makes pointer from integer without a cast

    vmemmap_section_start() gets called with an argument which is unsigned long.
