I have to admit these changes look a bit like "cast to different types
until the compiler is confused", but I don't see any problem arising
from those casts either. So if it's fixing a problem for you, it's fine
by me. I've applied the changes to the collectd-4.8 branch.

I assume that's GCC throwing those warnings? Just out of curiosity, what
version is that?
