Argh. I delayed applying/merging this overnight to see if there were
any reports, but this came in after I'd already merged Andrew's
patches and pushed them out.

So it's in my tree now as commit c2bc26f7ca1f ("sparc32: use PUD
rather than PGD to get PMD in srmmu_nocache_init()")

Mind sending a patch relative to the previous one that already got merged?

Also, would it perhaps be worth it to just make __nocache_fix() not
throw the type away? IOW, make it do something like

  #define __nocache_fix(VADDR) \

or whatever? Wouldn't that show when those pgd/p4d/pud pointers get
mis-used because they don't end up dropping the type info..
