Well yeah. But it isn't a very good tradition.

static inline struct cuse_conn *cdev_to_cc(struct cdev *cdev)
{
return container_of(cdev, struct cuse_conn, cdev);
}
should generate the same code and is prettier.

Unfortunately it has no additional type-safety. You can still pass it
the address of a tty_driver.cdev instead of a cuse_conn.cdev and the
compiler will happily swallow it. Not a big problem in practice though.
