commit c5cb077ab3c88394b7ac8ed4e746bd31b53e39f1

    Py_IS_TYPE() macro uses Py_TYPE() (GH-22341)

Steps to Reproduce:

1. dnf install -y python3-devel pkgconf-pkg-config gcc
2. printf '#include <Python.h>' > test.c
3. gcc -Wcast-qual -Werror -c test.c `pkg-config --cflags --libs python-3.10`

Actual results:
sh-5.1# gcc -Wcast-qual -Werror -c test.c `pkg-config --cflags --libs python-3.10`
