Hi All,
I just noticed that the kernel pre-v2.1.0 (pl4) is not compiling
cleanly. I get the warning:
BusLogic.c: In function `BusLogic_ReadHostAdapterConfiguration':
BusLogic.c:1188: warning: comparison between pointer and integer
BusLogic.c:1201: warning: comparison between pointer and integer

Looks like the comparison between high_memory and MAX_DMA_ADDRESS is causing
the warning. It looks harmless, and I'll take care of it as soon as I can deal
with 2.1.x. Unfortunately, the switch to ELF-only compilation means I can't
build and test any 2.1.x kernels myself as yet. I've been planning to move to
ELF, but there are a couple of higher priority tasks that have to come first.
