    this code appears in drivers that are for Blackfin-specific pieces of
    hardware. it may fail to build on
    some-random-arch-that-isnt-Blackfin, but if it works for Blackfin,
    what do the other arches realistically matter ?

    yes, the code will get changed as suggested as it is the right thing
    to do, it just isnt a real problem today.
