OK... So all messing around __kernel __force is actually a red herring.

Frankly, for now I'd keep it as in your patch. Yes, including workarounds
in these few places. Longer term... We probably want to implement
__attribute__((qualify(...)))/__attribute__((unqualify(...))), revert
__typeof__ for AS/noderef to what gcc is doing for normal qualifiers
(i.e. "if p is int const *, typeof(*p) v gives const int") go for explicit
__unqualify((address_space,noderef)) in there. Playing interesting games
with arrays for unqualify (i.e. creating parallel chains of type nodes
all way down to the place where original qualifier had been applied).
