My codecheckers found these, rightfully I'd say:

drivers/i2c/busses/i2c-designware-master.c:427:53: warning: incorrect type in argument 3 (different signedness)
drivers/i2c/busses/i2c-designware-master.c:427:53: expected unsigned int *val
drivers/i2c/busses/i2c-designware-master.c:427:53: got int *

drivers/i2c/busses/i2c-designware-common.c:127: warning: Excess function parameter 'base' description in 'i2c_dw_init_regmap'

^ means there is an argument documented which does not exist in the
function declaration
