Description Peter Jeremy 2006-12-12 18:20:02 UTC
	sys/nfs/nfs_common.h defines a macro nfsm_aligned()
	to test if a particular address is sufficiently aligned
	for the architecture.  It does this by casting the address
	to u_long.  For portability, it should cast to intptr_t.

	The existing code will fail on an architecture with strict
	alignment where sizeof(void *) > sizeof(u_long)

Fix: The following (untested) patch should work
How-To-Repeat: 	Code inspection
