    networking: make skb_put & friends return void pointers
    
    It seems like a historic accident that these return unsigned char *,
    and in many places that means casts are required, more often than not.
    
    Make these functions (skb_put, __skb_put and pskb_put) return void *
    and remove all the casts across the tree, adding a (u8 *) cast only
    where the unsigned char pointer was used directly, all done with the
    following spatch:
    
        @@
        expression SKB, LEN;
        typedef u8;
        identifier fn = { skb_put, __skb_put };
        @@
        - *(fn(SKB, LEN))
        + *(u8 *)fn(SKB, LEN)
    
        @@
        expression E, SKB, LEN;
        identifier fn = { skb_put, __skb_put };
        type T;
        @@
        - E = ((T *)(fn(SKB, LEN)))
        + E = fn(SKB, LEN)
    
    which actually doesn't cover pskb_put since there are only three
    users overall.
    
    A handful of stragglers were converted manually, notably a macro in
    drivers/isdn/i4l/isdn_bsdcomp.c and, oddly enough, one of the many
    instances in net/bluetooth/hci_sock.c. In the former file, I also
    had to fix one whitespace problem spatch introduced.
