I know. I'm just saying your fix doesn't seem wrong. (Personally I would have
just cast once to (void *) and let C not being C++ do the right thing, but eh...)

Not sure I understand the point of the original code though. Under what
conditions do you want 64 bit page tables on a 32 bit system? (Some PAE variant?)

I can't find a user of it. None of the existing defconfigs select this option:

  $ grep -r X2TLB arch/sh/configs

And it's weird in other ways, like 8k page size. (Why...?)

Google finds sh-x2 mentioned in Renesas' sh4a debugger docs, but I've never
played with the renesas "a" variants. The stuff I'm familiar with is all
following up on what Hitachi did, not Renesas.

*shrug* You fix looks good enough to me.
