Subject: [PATCH][next] firewire: cdev: Fix function cast error

Fix the following function cast error when building with
-Wcast-function-type:

drivers/firewire/core-cdev.c: In function ‘ioctl_create_iso_context’:
drivers/firewire/core-cdev.c:985:8: error: cast between incompatible function types from ‘void (*)(struct fw_iso_context *, dma_addr_t,  void *)’ {aka ‘void (*)(struct fw_iso_context *, long long unsigned int,  void *)’} to ‘void (*)(struct fw_iso_context *, u32,  size_t,  void *, void *)’ {aka ‘void (*)(struct fw_iso_context *, unsigned int,  long unsigned int,  void *, void *)’} [-Werror=cast-function-type]
  985 |   cb = (fw_iso_callback_t)iso_mc_callback;
      |        ^
cc1: all warnings being treated as errors

This helps with the ongoing efforts to globally enable -Wcast-function-type,
so when Control Flow Integrity checking lands in the kernel, incompatible
function type casting doesn't interfere with it.
