Subject[PATCH v3 0/2] drivers/irqchip: Remove function callback casts
In an effort to enable -Wcast-function-type in the top-level Makefile to
support Control Flow Integrity builds, there are the need to remove all
the function callback casts.

The first patch creates a macro called ACPI_DECLARE_SUBTABLE_PROBE_ENTRY
to initialize the acpi_probe_entry struct using the probe_subtbl field
instead of the probe_table field to avoid function cast mismatches.

The second patch modifies the IRQCHIP_ACPI_DECLARE macro to use the new
defined macro ACPI_DECLARE_SUBTABLE_PROBE_ENTRY instead of the macro
ACPI_DECLARE_PROBE_ENTRY. Also, modifies the prototype of the functions
used by the invocation of the IRQCHIP_ACPI_DECLARE macro to match all the
