[PATCH] mm: Fix warning

From: Ralf Baechle
Date: Wed May 22 2013 - 06:19:15 EST

virt_to_page() is typically implemented as a macro containing a cast so
it'll accept both pointers and unsigned long without causing a warning.
MIPS virt_to_page() uses virt_to_phys which is a function so passing an
unsigned long will cause a warning:

/home/ralf/src/linux/linux-mips/mm/page_alloc.c:5161:3: warning: passing argument 1 of âvirt_to_physâ makes pointer from integer without a cast [enabled by default]

All others users of virt_to_page() in mm/ are passing a void *.
