Genuine question: How do we deal with that properly? A
standards-compliant way might be a memcpy to a variable on the stack,
but this might be very inefficient for large structures. Also, for
example in talloc.c we inevitably do some casting to structs. How is
that possible in a portable manner that does not generate warnings?
