SubjectRe: linux-next: build failure after merge of the asm-generic tree
Hi Stephen, Arnd,

I have prepared a patch addressing this issue, and am currently building it
with a powerpc cross compiler. I'll submit it once it's done. Please tell
me if I should update the initial patch instead.

I also have patches for these architectures, but it is more complicated for
me to test them with a cross compiler. Should I still submit them?

Yes, and it does not even make sense to add a const qualifier to the addr
argument in the iowrite case. That was a bad commit message.

Thanks, and sorry for the trouble.
