In an effort to enable -Wcast-function-type in the top-level Makefile to
support Control Flow Integrity builds, remove all the function callback
casts.

To do this, modify the "fw_iso_context_create" function prototype adding
a new parameter for the multichannel callback. Also, fix all the
function calls accordingly.

In the "fw_iso_context_create" function return an error code if both
callback parameters are NULL and also set the "ctx->callback.sc"
explicity to NULL in this case. It is not necessary set to NULL the
"ctx->callback.mc" variable because this and "ctx->callback.sc" are an
union and setting one implies setting the other one to the same value.

Changelog v1->v2
-Set explicity to NULL the "ctx->callback.sc" variable and return an error
 code in "fw_iso_context_create" function if both callback parameters are
 NULL as Lev R. Oshvang suggested.
-Modify the commit changelog accordingly.

I'm an author of ALSA firewire stack and thanks for the patch. I agree with
your intention to remove the cast of function callback toward CFI build.

Practically, the isochronous context with FW_ISO_CONTEXT_RECEIVE_MULTICHANNEL
is never used by in-kernel drivers. Here, I propose to leave current
kernel API (fw_iso_context_create() with fw_iso_callback_t) as is.
Alternatively, a new kernel API for the context (e.g.
fw_iso_mc_context_create() with fw_iso_mc_callback_t). This idea leaves
current drivers as is and the change is done inner firewire-core driver,
therefore existent kernel API is not changed.

Later I post two patches for the proposal. I'd like you to review it and
I'm glad to receive your comments.


Regards

If it's not used by anyone, why is it still there?  Can't we just delete
it?

For this patchset, I followed to the theory to keep backward compatibility
when adding any change, and it's what I'd like to discuss.

The isoc context of multichannel mode is also available for userspace
applications, and libhinoko[1] uses it. In a point of backward
compatibility for userspace, we can't delete the mode.

(Practically, the mode is useful for the purpose of packet sniffing in
bus and helpful to my work for development of ALSA firewire stack[2].)

On the other hand, there's no unit driver to use the mode in upstream
kernel. It's unlikely to use the mode for unit driver since the mode is
not specific to unit functionality. In my opinion, it's reasonable to
lose backward compatibility slightly by hiding the multichannel mode
from in-kernel unit driver.

I'll post v2 patchset later and I'd like you to merge them if no
objections from the others for the loss of backward compatibility.
