[PATCH 1/4] scsi: pmcraid: use __iomem pointers for ioctl argument




kernelci.org reports a new compile warning for old code in the pmcraid
driver:

arch/mips/include/asm/uaccess.h:138:21: warning: passing argument 1 of '__access_ok' makes pointer from integer without a cast [-Wint-conversion]

The warning got introduced by a cleanup to the access_ok() helper
that requires the argument to be a pointer, where the old version
silently accepts 'unsigned long' arguments as it still does on most
other architectures.

The new behavior in MIPS however seems absolutely sensible, and so far I
could only find one other file with the same issue, so the best solution
seems to be to clean up the pmcraid driver.

This makes the driver consistently use 'void __iomem *' pointers for
passing around the address of the user space ioctl arguments, which gets
rid of the kernelci warning as well as several sparse warnings.

Fixes: f0a955f4eeec ("mips: sanitize __access_ok()")

I wanted to be sure that I get all the __iomem annotations right, so
I ended up fixing all other sparse warnings as well, see the three
follow-up patches.
