[riot-devel] API CHANGE: msg_t now carries void pointers

Hello revising IOTlers,

another day another API change: After some discussion in [1] we decided to
unify the typing of pointers of unspecified type. The first fall-out from
that discussion was the changing of the pointer of the `content.ptr` field
of `msg_t`. It is now `void *` instead of `char *`, so no explicit casting
is needed anymore when using it.

Cheers,
Martine
