OK, I see the problem. The code has, eg:

{ "sh7724-ether", (kernel_ulong_t)&sh7724_data }

Coccinelle doesn't know anything about kernel_ulong_t, so it assumes that
it is an identifier, and that the whole expression is a bit and, rather
than an address computation. And at the same time, the cast causes the
compiler to discard the const annotation, so it doesn't complain either.

I can update the rule to avoid this case, since taking a bit and on the
address of a top-level structure is not likely to be useful, and I will
check whether any of the other patches are affected by this issue.

Thanks for the report.
