> Fixed: warning: cast from pointer to integer of different size
> The Hyper-V hosts always use 64 bit request id. The guests can have 32 or 64
> bit pointers which equal to the ulong type size. So we cast it to ulong type.
> And, assigning 32bit integer to 64 bit variable works fine.
> The VMBus returns the same id in the completion packet. But the value has no
> effect on the host side.

Such build warning fixes are not appropriate for 'net' at this time, and
this patch does not apply to 'net-next', so I'm dropping this entirely.
