You are right, this patch is completely wrong for i386, it gives me a
warning too. I should have checked that before, sorry. 

I should also have said I am using a cross compiler, which is the one
that gives the warning compiling the current code:
arm-linux-gnueabi-gcc --version
arm-linux-gnueabi-gcc (Ubuntu/Linaro 4.7.3-12ubuntu1) 4.7.3

That is what is probably happening, operations must be done to operands
of the same size, and the intel compiler is casting everything to
unsigned long (because I have a 64 bit machine??), but the arm compiler
is casting to unsigned int :-(

PAGE_MASK is defined as a number without any cast, so not sure which
compiler is right
        #define PAGE_SHIFT              12
        #define PAGE_MASK               (~((1 << PAGE_SHIFT) - 1))

This new patch fixes the warning for the arm gcc compiler and the i386
compiler, it just makes sure everything is cast to unsigned long
Could you please forget the previous one and give your opinion about
this one?
