Subject: sparc snapshot failure :(

my sys/mbuf.h (1.58) declares mh_data as a caddr_t, which my sparc
(when compiling a kernel) sees as a char *. this is a problem when
line 741 of tulip.c (1.194) gets expanded from
if ((sc->sc_ntxsegs == 1 && (mtod(m0, bus_addr_t) & 3) != 0) ||
if ((sc->sc_ntxsegs == 1 &&
((( bus_addr_t )(( m0 )-> m_hdr.mh_data )) & 3) != 0) ||
which i've wrapped so that it's easier to read. the other type there
is the bus_addr_t, which is typedef'ed as a u_int64_t on line 113 of
arch/sparc64/include/bus.h (1.27) which i guess i'm using because the
GENERIC_SUN4U config file reaches over into the sparc64 conf
anyway! the compiler says "warning: cast from pointer to integer of
different size" and i think i agree with it. not that there would be
any data loss here, but it makes my "make snapshot" die when it gets
to trying to compile the GENERIC_SUN4U kernel.
