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

To do this remove the cast to a function pointer type in the comparison
statement and add to the right and left operand a cast to unsigned long
type. This can be done since the comparison is against function address
(these operands are not function calls).
