req_cnt should not be removed. Jes tested the patch but this critical
bug appears only with BITS_PER_LONG != 64 && CONFIG_HIGHMEM=n case. So
he didn't see this, I think.

qla1280_32bit_start_scsi also gives the following warning:

drivers/scsi/qla1280.c: In function 'qla1280_32bit_start_scsi':
drivers/scsi/qla1280.c:3044: warning: unused variable 'dma_handle'
