    5.18 Arithmetic on void- and Function-Pointers

    In GNU C, addition and subtraction operations are supported on pointers
    to void and on pointers to functions. This is done by treating the size
    of a void or of a function as 1.

    A consequence of this is that sizeof is also allowed on void and on
    function types, and returns 1.

    The option -Wpointer-arith requests a warning if these extensions are used.
