#define set_delayed_type(call, f, arg) \
(sizeof(f(arg),0), \
__set_delayed_type(call, ({ \
void _(void *__) {f((typeof(arg))(unsigned long)__);} \
_;}), (void *)arg))

woult do nicely, but it's a gccism, and the one clang doesn't support ;-/
gcc support goes back at least to 4.1, not sure about the earlier branches
(and not at all sure how flaky it was/is, obviously).

But this thing works for e.g. f being void(char) and arg being char,
and AFAICS generates correct code - we end up with a stub like
movsbl %dil, %edi
jmp f
and its address gets stored in call->fn, which should DTRT on call...
