Subject: [PATCH 2/2] sparc32: srmmu: improve type safety of __nocache_fix()

From: Mike Rapoport <rppt@...ux.ibm.com>

The __nocache_fix(VADDR) macro is used to add an offset for pointers and
its "return type" is 'void *'.

We can do better and keep the type information with simply by casting the
return value to (__typeof__(VADDR)).

This will  ".. show when those pgd/p4d/pud pointers get mis-used because
they don't end up dropping the type info.."

The addition of the casting to __nocache_fix() also allows to remove
explicit casts at its call sites.
