[PATCH] warnings cleanup

Hi all.

I'd like to see osmocom-bb builds less cluttered by compiler warnings - attached is
(far from complete) attempt to do so. It's tested which means it builds on my machine
and resulting mobile app seems to run fine - no in-depth testing were made.

However I'd like to get some feedback before going further: there seems to be some
evil hackery happening around src/target/firmware/apps/loader/main.c:

Why do we have external "unsigned char _start" which later used as msgb_put_u32(msg,

Do we make some assumptions on the size of unsigned char? Is this documented
somewhere by any chance?

Also there are plenty of warnings regarding alignment: some things are marked as
"__attribute__ ((packed))" and some are not which seems to make compiler unhappy. Is
there rule of thumb to decide when we should care about alignment?

best regards,
