There is some unnecessary slowness when a function returns a function pointer.

In the ffi.cdef() declarations I modified deq() to return a void*,
then I added a cast in the calling code:
    fp = q.deq()
    fp = ffi.cast("FuncPtr", fp)
this makes the "cpp" version much faster, 3x faster than the pure python version.
