Comply with POSIX.1-2008 and C++11 for the definition of NULL
Currently NULL is only defined in sys/null.h as an integer type (int for 32bit and long for 64bit):
1) While ISO C does not require it, POSIX.1-2008 defines NULL to be cast as void *.
2) While C++98/03 uses an integer type, C++11 onwards defines NULL as a pointer literal.
The definitions should be added accordingly.
