Ah, so we still have some of these. The warning was only recently added.

IIRC this can be avoided using a ({ ... }) type expression.

The I/O accessors are defined in an unusual way that defeats a lot
of the type checking we normally have. Generally speaking the
memory space operations (readl/ioread32/__raw_readl, ...) should
be inline functions taking a 'const volatile void __iomem *' argument
(non-const for writel), while the I/O space operations should take
an integer port number (16 or 32 bit, depending on how your ISA
or PCI buses work).

Doing that should avoid all the warnings you quote here, but may
introduce warnings about nonportable driver code.

This might be a kernel bug.

I've removed that kind of warning from other architectures.

You can probably pick the maximum here.

This might come from the new CONFIG_NO_AUTO_INLINE.

Maybe add a Kconfig dependency on !M68K?

No idea.

Not gcc warnings.
