When building sparc32 images, this results in the following
error.

drivers/base/platform.c: In function 'setup_pdev_archdata':
drivers/base/platform.c:235:22: error: assignment from incompatible pointer type [-Werror=incompatible-pointer-types]
pdev->dev.dma_mask = &pdev->dma_mask;

pdev->dev.dma_mask is u64 *, pdev->dma_mask is dma_addr_t which in turn
is either u32 or u64 depending on the architecture.

... so this will have to be u64, or the pointer in struct device would
have to be fixed.

However, even changing the definition to u64 does not help: The warnings
are still reported. This is because setup_pdev_archdata() is not called
for any of the affected devices. That is kind of interesting since it
means that arch_setup_pdev_archdata() won't be called for those devices
either.
