[PATCH v2] powerpc: silence a -Wcast-function-type warning in dawr_write_file_bool

In commit c1fe190c0672 ("powerpc: Add force enable of DAWR on P9
option") the following piece of code was added:

   smp_call_function((smp_call_func_t)set_dawr, &null_brk, 0);

Since GCC 8 this triggers the following warning about incompatible
function types:

  arch/powerpc/kernel/hw_breakpoint.c:408:21: error: cast between incompatible function types from 'int (*)(struct arch_hw_breakpoint *)' to 'void (*)(void *)' [-Werror=cast-function-type]

Since the warning is there for a reason, and should not be hidden behind
a cast, provide an intermediate callback function to avoid the warning.
