Ok, so there should be a ds.ko compiled then, which I'm not getting
(there is a ds.o in the build tree, but it doesn't get installed as a
module).  I'm still trying to figure out why this is.

I made sure that was enabled (it isn't very evident that it has to be, I
found that out from the code), but still got the same warnings.  I don't
suppose there is the possibility that 'unsigned long long' isn't 64 bit
on MIPS?  I changed the #ifdef CONFIG_64BIT_PHYS_ADDR to '#if 1' in
include/asm/types.h (for the typedef phys_t) just to make sure, and got
the same result (those warnings).

Thank you very much for the info, it gives me a better idea of what I
should be seeing.  I'll keep probing to see if I can figure out whats
going on.  Best regards,
