OK, this is definitely a weakness of the script and my methodology for
checking the results. There was already a case of a cast that I have
fixed up my script for, but this one is worse because it's under a macro.
I can look into whether the cast can be changed to add a const, but for
the time being, I think you should just drop this patch.

Thanks for the careful review.
