Yepp, that makes sense. I am not really comfortable fixing this as I
have no idea how PAE actually works, but I digged through git history
and sent a patch to linux-fbdev (I put you on CC). The (long)-cast
should be sufficient, I guess.

Were there any other build warnings you encountered?

Thanks
David
