Ok, I had the latest sparse, but I've been developing the host driver
against Ubuntu 8.04's kernel, which is based on 2.6.24. Using Linus' git
tree resolved the errors from sparse.

I ended up finding that the dma_mapping_error() API has changed, and so
I updated the driver for that. It should build against 2.6.28-rc now.
I'll post it in a little while.
