Subject[PATCH 0/6] RFC: Typesafe callbacks
Date
Hi all,

Converting to and from void * for callback functions loses type safety:
everywhere else we expect the compiler to catch incorrect pointer types
handed to functions.

It's pretty simple to create typesafe callback functions using typeof, and
with a little gcc trickery we can allow both old-style and typesafe callbacks
to avoid churn on commonly-used routines.

Feedback welcomed,
Rusty.
