We have all these now unnecessary casts previously included for K&R
compatibility, e.g. the return type of allocating functions or the
arguments of memcpy, etc. Basically stuff possibly declared as PTR
either now or in the past.
I wanted to generate a complete list of such functions to know where
to look for zapping spurious casts. So far I have these for return
for argument casts I have these functions:
Can anyone think of anything else?
