curious compiler-warning

Hi Jim,

I tried to make the ia64-specific files in the Linux kernel compile
cleanly with gcc v4.0.1 and ended up with this curious warning

arch/ia64/kernel/time.c:198: warning: format '%u' expects type
'unsigned int', but argument 5 has type 'unsigned int'

Argument 5 here is a bit field declared as:

  unsigned long field : 32;

and if I use a format of '%lu' (what we used so far), I also get a
warning, which wasn't the case with pre-4.x compilers.

Do you know what's wrong here?
