That is a good idea. I haven't change them because the 'task' argument was
not being used at all, hence no GCC warning also. But due to the
__run_parallel() function parameter, I agree that we need to change them all.

Also, we need to change the test_update_delete(unsigned int fn, void *data)
function, which is also called through __run_parallel():

	run_parallel(TASKS, test_update_delete, data);

I am sending a V2 soon. Than you!
