scsi: ata: Use unsigned int for cmd's type in ioctls in scsi_host_template
Clang warns several times in the scsi subsystem (trimmed for brevity): drivers/scsi/hpsa.c:6209:7: warning: overflow converting case value to switch condition type (2147762695 to 18446744071562347015) [-Wswitch] case CCISS_GETBUSTYPES: ^ drivers/scsi/hpsa.c:6208:7: warning: overflow converting case value to switch condition type (2147762694 to 18446744071562347014) [-Wswitch] case CCISS_GETHEARTBEAT: ^ The root cause is that the _IOC macro can generate really large numbers, which don't fit into type 'int', which is used for the cmd parameter in the ioctls in scsi_host_template. My research into how GCC and Clang are handling this at a low level didn't prove fruitful. However, looking at the rest of the kernel tree, all ioctls use an 'unsigned int' for the cmd parameter, which will fit all of the _IOC values in the scsi/ata subsystems. Make that change because none of the ioctls expect a negative value for any command, it brings the ioctls inline with the reset of the kernel, and it removes ambiguity, which is never good when dealing with compilers.
