Well, so sparse does the whole "void pointer arithmetic" thing too,
but sparse actually complains about use of sizeof(void).

We could remove that warning, though. But:

That might be the right approach, even if I like how it only used
standard C (although _disgusting_ standard C) without it apart from
the small issue of sizeof(void)

So something like

#define __is_constant(a) \
__builtin_types_compatible_p(int *, typeof(1 ? ((void*)((a) *
0l)) : (int*)1 ) )

if I counted the parentheses right..
