Subject: [PATCH] ibmvfc: fix missing cast of ibmvfc_event pointer to u64 handle

Commit 2aa0102c6688 ("scsi: ibmvfc: Use correlation token to tag
commands") sets the vfcFrame correlation token to the pointer handle of
the associated ibmvfc_event. However, that commit failed to cast the
pointer to an appropriate type which in this case is a u64. As such
sparse warnings are generated for both correlation token assignments.

 ibmvfc.c:2375:36: sparse: incorrect type in argument 1 (different base types)
 ibmvfc.c:2375:36: sparse: expected unsigned long long [usertype] val
 ibmvfc.c:2375:36: sparse: got struct ibmvfc_event *[assigned] evt

Add the apporpriate u64 casts when assigning an ibmvfc_event as a
correlation token.
