Subject[PATCH 8/8] [SCSI] pmcraid: Pass pointers to access_ok(), not integers
From
Date
Most architectures define access_ok() as a macro that casts its
argument such that an argument of type unsigned long will be accepted
without complaint. However, the proper type is void *, and passing
unsigned long results in a warning on sparc64.

Compile-tested only.

If at first you don't succeed, you're doing about average.
