First, a C compiler should not error out from passing a pointer of
a different type - such strictness is reserved for C++ compilers... :)

Second, the volatile modifier is not supported by most compilers.
It is fairly new so I wouldn't recommend using it until more compilers
support it (and even then you should #define it away if the compiler
doesn't support it)
