4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Arnd Bergmann <a...@arndb.de>

commit 62a6abdd427b5fc4d8aad5dac874904e96273e6d upstream.

When dma_addr_t is 64-bit, we get a warning about an invalid cast
in the call to ux500_dma_is_compatible() from ux500_dma_channel_program():

drivers/usb/musb/ux500_dma.c: In function 'ux500_dma_channel_program':
drivers/usb/musb/ux500_dma.c:210:51: error: cast to pointer from integer of 
different size [-Werror=int-to-pointer-cast]
  if (!ux500_dma_is_compatible(channel, packet_sz, (void *)dma_addr, len))

The problem is that ux500_dma_is_compatible() is called from the
main musb driver on the virtual address, but here we pass in a
DMA address, so the types are fundamentally different but it works
because the function only checks the alignment of the buffer and
that is the same.

We could work around this by adding another cast, but I have checked
that the buffer we get passed here is already checked before it
gets mapped, so the second check seems completely unnecessary
and removing it must be the cleanest solution.
