[Frama-c-discuss] Casting to a generic function pointer

Thanks for the detailed answer Andre. I'm not sure if it has something to
do with the fact that I am running this on preprocessed *.i files.
I tried to run them on the original *.c files, but that fails with:

[kernel] /data/nginx-1.9.14/src/os/unix/ngx_setaffinity.h:16:
  syntax error:
  Location: line 16, between columns 8 and 18, before or at token:
  16    typedef cpu_set_t ngx_cpuset_t;

I did try frama-c on a toy example with the strlen and malloc calls and
that works perfectly.
