Patch looks OK to me.  Comments:

1) Either Geert or Ralf can merge this, with my ACK.

2) Would be nice to get it tested on the machines you list as untested.

3) [possible problem in driver, not your changes] I wonder if IRQ_HANDLED is
ever returned for shared interrupts?  I don't know enough about the platform
interrupt architecture to answer this question.

4) Remove casts to/from void.  This is especially noticable in all the casts
of the netdev_priv() return value.

5) If it doesn't cause too much patch noise, consider using enums rather than
#defines, for numeric constants.  This gives the compiler more type
information and makes the symbols visible in a debugger.  This is a
-maintainer preference- issue overall, so don't sweat it if you disagree.

This patch removes the unecessary void* casts introduced in the first patch.


The two patches referred to above have been tested on Jazz MIPS and
ack'd off-list by Thomas Bogendorfer. He also added the cosmetic change below.

I think this is ready to be merged (Jeff?)

Roman, is your m68k DMA implementation ready for commit? Thomas will take care of the Jazz one.

Can you please resend with full description and sign-off list?
