On m68k (see e.g.
http://kisskb.ellerman.id.au/kisskb/buildresult/7864856/), I'm getting
lots of warnings for this:

as you're using debugfs_create_size_t() to refer to "unsigned long"
instead of "size_t".

Some of the variables you can change from "unsigned long" to "size_t",
as you just increment
or decrement them.
For others, that's not a good idea, as you assign them the return value of
atomic_inc_return()/atomic_dec_return(), which is "int", i.e. always 32-bit,
while "size_t" is 64-bit on 64-bit platforms.

zcache-main.c suffers from similar problems:

But there is more work to do, as zcache_dump() formats many of them as "%lu",
which should be "%zu" if you convert the counters to size_t.
Note that you do not have to cast a "u64" to "unsigned long long" to format it
using "%llu", so please remove the casts.

In personal conversations with technical people, I call myself a hacker. But
when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
