Issue Description:

When calling a C API from Swift that takes a dispatch queue as argument, on Linux the type conversion fails.

Example. A C function that defines a function that takes a dispatch_queue_t as argument.

Code (run-me.c)
#include <dispatch/dispatch.h>
void sayHiOnQueue(dispatch_queue_t queue);

Code (run-me.swift):
import Foundation

let queue = DispatchQueue(label: "test")
Compiling via:
swiftc -import-objc-header run-me.h -emit-object -module-name runme run-me.swift

On macOS this works as expected. On Linux this fails with:

run-me.swift:4:14: error: cannot convert value of type 'DispatchQueue' to expected argument type 'dispatch_queue_t?' (aka 'Optional<OpaquePointer>')
