SubjectRe: Remove lots of IS_ERR_VALUE abuses and compilation warning.
From
Date
Yes, You are right,
-Now Return type of 'qe_muram_alloc' is 'unsigned long', That Was trying
to assigned in ucc_fast_tx_virtual_fifo_base_offset and
ucc_fast_rx_virtual_fifo_base_offset. These variable are 'unsigned int'.
So before assignment need a proper type casting.

-Passing value in IS_ERR_VALUE() is wrong. So this is also need a proper
type casting before passing an argument.

I have done the changes and re-submitted anther patch, Please review It.

Thanks,
Arvind
