Follow-up Comment #1, patch #9876 (project lwip):
Well… erm… I have mixed feelings about an API change just to change a
pointer type (void* and u8_t* is basically the same thing) and adding some
const hints to compiler. It does not fix any issue, does not add a feature,
does not even prepare to welcome a new feature, in my opinion it is quite
close to being just cosmetic and nitpick.
That would have been great before the 2.x release, now I'm not sure breaking
something that works with something doing exactly the same thing but in a
slightly different and incompatible way is worth it.
