Hi Boris,

I have changed as you suggested, looks clear without type cast, and
we need some variable as long to calculate the address, and at same
time as the struct pointer to find it's length, so I change as below,
and get_acpi_srat_table() return an unsigned long.
How do you think of that.

int get_immovable_mem_num(void)
{
        unsigned long table_addr, table_end, table;
        struct acpi_table_header *table_header;
        struct acpi_subtable_header *sub_table;
        char arg[MAX_ACPI_ARG_LENGTH];
        int num = 0;

        if (cmdline_find_option("acpi", arg, sizeof(arg)) == 3 &&
            !strncmp(arg, "off", 3))
                return;

        table_addr = get_acpi_srat_table();
        if (!table_addr)
                return;

        table_header = (struct acpi_table_header *)table_addr;
        table_end = table_addr + table_header->length;
        table = table_addr + sizeof(struct acpi_table_srat);

        while (table + sizeof(struct acpi_subtable_header) < table_end) {
                sub_table = (struct acpi_subtable_header *)table;
                if (sub_table->type == ACPI_SRAT_TYPE_MEMORY_AFFINITY) {
                        struct acpi_srat_mem_affinity *ma;

                        ma = (struct acpi_srat_mem_affinity *)table;
                        if (!(ma->flags & ACPI_SRAT_MEM_HOT_PLUGGABLE)) {
                                immovable_mem[num].start = ma->base_address;
                                immovable_mem[num].size = ma->length;
                                num++;
                        }

                        if (num >= MAX_NUMNODES*2) {
                                debug_putstr("Too many immovable memory regions, aborting.\n");
                                return 0;
                        }
                }
                table += sub_table->length;
        }
        return num;
}

Thanks,
Chao Fan
