Not really, you can cast from void * to you own structure.. btw why do
you need uintptr_t?

The problem is a pointer to enum conversion :) I think the right way
would be to do would be below

        soc_type =  (enum foo)of_device_get_match_data(dev);

        soc_type =  (unsigned long) of_device_get_match_data(dev);

which I think should be fine in gcc, but possibly give you above warning
in clang.. but i thought that was fixed in clang https://reviews.llvm.org/D75758
