Based on your suggestion, I've come up with the following code snippet:

#define MIN_HEAP_PREALLOCATED(_type, _name, _nr) \
struct _name {  \
    int nr; \
    int size;   \
    _type *data;    \
    _type preallocated[_nr];    \

#define MIN_HEAP(_type, _name) MIN_HEAP_PREALLOCATED(_type, _name, 0)

typdef MIN_HEAP(char, _) min_heap_char;

static __always_inline
void min_heap_init(min_heap_char *heap, void *data, int size)
	heap->nr = 0;
	heap->size = size;
    heap->data = size <= ARRAY_SIZE(heap->preallocated) ? heap->preallocated : data;

But I'm not sure how to implement other inline functions like
min_heap_push or min_heap_pop if I do that, unless they are rewritten
using macros. Also, I'm not sure how to make the less and swp functions
in the min_heap_callbacks not use void * type parameters. Or perhaps I
misunderstood your meaning again. If you could sketch out your idea or
have a better approach, it would be a great help to me. Any guidance
would be greatly appreciated.
