Unfortunately, you can not type cast function pointers in C. It is against the C ABI.
I am sure it is done in a few places in the kernel anyway, but those are wrong.

This is the reason why many calls to devm_add_action() point to functions such as

static void visconti_clk_disable_unprepare(void *data)
{
        clk_disable_unprepare(data);
}

which could otherwise be handled using typecasts.
