As indicated by the prototype above, membase is not a pointer...

... hence you introduced 3 compiler warnings:

drivers/net/mac8390.c:249: warning: passing argument 1 of
'__builtin_memcpy' makes pointer from integer without a cast
drivers/net/mac8390.c:254: warning: passing argument 1 of
'word_memcpy_tocard' makes pointer from integer without a cast
drivers/net/mac8390.c:256: warning: passing argument 2 of
'word_memcpy_fromcard' makes pointer from integer without a cast
