Hi, thanks for your comments. This cast tries to make some static 
checkers happy.
Please correct me if I misunderstood it:
vp_ioread16() returns an u16, and bool is not an one bit variable, it is 
C99 _Bool.
C99 defines _Bool to be true(expends to int 1) or false(expends to int 0).
I think this implies a bool is actually capable to store an u16.
so I am afraid some checkers may complain about "queue_enable = 
vp_ioread16(&cfg->queue_enable);",
a cast here can help us silence the checkers.

see http://www.open-std.org/jtc1/sc22/wg14/www/docs/n1256.pdf section 7.16
and https://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/process/coding-style.rst 
section 17

Thanks,
Zhu Lingshan
