On m68k, I get:

fs/fscache/page.c: In function ‘__fscache_uncache_all_inode_pages’:
fs/fscache/page.c:979: warning: comparison is always false due to
limited range of data type

next is pgoff_t, which is defined to unsigned long by default, unless
overridden by the arch
(hmm, no single arch seems to do that?).
loff_t is (signed) long long.
