sparse issues a warning when user pointers are casted to integer
types except to unsigned longs which are explicitly allowed.
However it may happen that we would like to also be warned
on casts to unsigned long.

Fix this by adding a new warning flag: -Wcast-from-as (to mirrors
-Wcast-to-as) which extends -Waddress-space to all casts that
remove an address space attribute (without using __force).
