In my understanding after looking into the commit message the comments.
I thinks yes. For 32-bit OS:
32-bit OS without PAE, it's u32.
32-bit OS with PAE in 64-bit machine, it's u64.

So I thinks there is some situations where it's u32.
'acpi_physical_address' was always u32 for 32-bit OS, and then to
solve some problems, "Zheng, Lv" add the commit. So I have added to Cc
"Zheng, Lv" , I am not sure whether "Zheng, Lv" can give some suggestion
about when acpi_physical_address is defined as u32.

Thanks,
Chao Fan
