[ovs-dev] [PATCH net-next 03/12] openvswitch: avoid cast-qual warning in vport_priv

From: Daniele Di Proietto <daniele.di.proietto at gmail.com>

This function must cast a const value to a non const value.
By adding an uintptr_t cast the warning is suppressed.
To avoid the cast (proper solution) several function signatures
must be changed.
