Subject: [PATCH 0/1] spi: cadence-quadspi: Fix a compilation warning for 64-bit platform

This patch is based on the latest linux-next. So the Fixes commit-id
maybe changed when it merged int v5.12-rc1. For details about the problem
analysis, see the patch description. The auxiliary information is listed here.

1) the type of size_t on 32-bit and 64-bit platforms
typedef unsigned long   __kernel_ulong_t;

#if __BITS_PER_LONG != 64
typedef unsigned int    __kernel_size_t;
typedef __kernel_ulong_t __kernel_size_t;

typedef __kernel_size_t         size_t;

2) The compilation warning information on arm64:

                 from drivers/spi/spi-cadence-quadspi.c:9:
