While compiling my code, I always get bunch of warrning from headers,
here is fix for them:
__getblk is alawys called with unsigned argument,
but it takes signed, the same story with __bread,__breadahead and so on.

The patch seems OK, but I'm curious to know why you're seeing this warning
and nobody else is.  Are you using a compiler other than gcc?  If gcc,
which version?  Did you add any new compiler options?

Thanks.

Andrew, i think it's due to 

,-*- quote -*-

`-*-

I get many of them, when compiling external modules with `-Wall', of
course ;)

I uses gcc "trunk" with -Wconversion,
 because of they finaly implement warrning for such things:
uint16_t a;
uint8_t b;
b = a;
see
http://gcc.gnu.org/wiki/NewWconversion

While I'm not a big fan of fixing signed vs unsigned -W generated
warnings (they tend to cause more harm than good), this patch looks ok
to me as well.
