When bar is called from

mpz_t value;
bar (value);

there is no original struct to go back to and there can be another

typedef struct iterator_stack_2
  struct iterator_stack_2 *prev;
  mpz_t value;
  int foo;
} iterator_stack_2;

iterator_stack_2 x;
bar (x.value);

What does bar get back to? Are you saying if a pointer is passed to bar,
it can get back to any original struct where the pointer is a field?
