> The tx_desc struct holds 8 __be64 values.  The original code in
> ring_tx_db() took a tx_desc pointer then casted it to an int pointer and
> then casted it to a u64 pointer.  It was confusing and triggered some
> static checker warnings.
> I have changed the cxgb_pio_copy() function to only take tx_desc
> pointers.  This isn't really a loss of flexibility because anything else
> was buggy to begin with.
> I also removed the casting on the destination pointer since that was
> unnecessary and a bit messy.
