For compatibility with systems where sizeof function pointer != sizeof
data ptr we need to change the several places where the hash functions
are abused like this (e.g., put the function pointer in a structure
and store the address of the structure in a hash).  I suspect there
are a few other abuses as well.

Can someone verify that there is such a system, and that it is
reasonable to expect Apache to be portable to such a system?  (the
last clause is intended to filter out "systems" like the mixed memory
model compilations with old DOS compilers with 16-bit targets :) )
