The commit 8e3d8433d8c22ca6c42cba4a67d300c39aae7822 ([NET]: MIPS
checksum annotations and cleanups) broke 64-bit MIPS.

The problem is the commit replaces some unsigned long with __be32.  On
64bit MIPS, a __be32 (i.e. unsigned int) value is represented as a
sign-extented 32-bit value in a 64-bit argument register.  So the
address (0xc0a80001) is passed as 0xffffffffc0a80001 to
csum_tcpudp_nofold() but the asm code in the function expects
0x00000000c0a80001, therefore it returns a wrong checksum.  Explicit
cast to unsigned long is needed to drop high 32bit.
