SubjectRe: epoll_ctl and const correctness

That doesn't prove very much. Unlike usermode code, Valgrind doesn't
instrument the kernel, so it computes the side-effects of kernel
operations by parsing the syscall stream and simulating the effect.
(That is to say, it strengthens your argument somewhat, but valgrind's
handling of this syscall could be buggy.)

Putting "const" first is conventional.
