Hmm, I personally think that it'd be better to leave the u32 there as it
corresponds to the hardware's counter width?

clockevent_delta2ns()' latch argument has been of type unsigned long
from the beginning and this might indicate that at least this
driver's original author followed this line of reasoning...

OTOH, I think that u32 is equivalent to unsigned long on microblaze, so
it doesn't matter much.

Does the above convince you or do you still want the

- clockevent_xilinx_timer.max_delta_ticks = (u32)~0;
+ clockevent_xilinx_timer.max_delta_ticks = ~0UL;
