Hm. The above is correct C, of course. But I would prefer tracing down
the full type, just because getting a warning from GCC when aac_common
does change it type. We would want to verify the casts in that situation.

What do you think about a macro __POINTEROFF(type, var, off) in cdefs.h,
which does all the dirty work, similiar to __DEVOLATILE / __DECONST and
the like?
