I get the following compiler error for drivers/video/cirrusfb.c on
mips:

  CC      drivers/video/cirrusfb.o
In file included from include/video/vga.h:25,
                 from drivers/video/cirrusfb.c:70:
include/asm/vga.h:29: error: syntax error before ‘volatile’
include/asm/vga.h:34: error: syntax error before ‘volatile’
make[2]: *** [drivers/video/cirrusfb.o] Error 1

These lines define scr_writew() and scr_readw():

29:static inline void scr_writew(u16 val, volatile u16 *addr)
34:static inline u16 scr_readw(volatile const u16 *addr)

Note that some other arches (powerpc, alpha) have the same
definitions in vga.h.

This is with 2.6.15.
