Subject: [PATCH] MIPS: BCM47XX: Cast memcmp() of function to (void *)

Clang is especially sensitive about argument type matching when using
__overloaded functions (like memcmp(), etc). Help it see that function
pointers are just "void *". Avoids this error:

arch/mips/bcm47xx/prom.c:89:8: error: no matching function for call to 'memcmp'
                   if (!memcmp(prom_init, prom_init + mem, 32))
                        ^~~~~~
include/linux/string.h:156:12: note: candidate function not viable: no known conversion from 'void (void)' to 'const void *' for 1st argument extern int memcmp(const void *,const void *,__kernel_size_t);
