Ah, I didn't see that. We were discussing here [1] backporting to 4.19
some cleanups we did for GCC 9 a few months ago, so I was testing that
Linus' master was still clean a few hours ago. When I found that
couple of warnings I quickly made a patch before I forgot. I should
probably have added RFC :-)

I added the surrounding code heuristically since it was in a single
block with the comment above and since it was repeated in both places,
but I had no idea on the semantics. :-)

We are adding a byte-sized offset, so char * is the one that makes
sense. Doing it with void * works, although it is a GNU extension. But
as you prefer :-)

Cheers,
Miguel
