Subject[PATCH 02/12] x86/ftrace: Fix compiler warning in ftrace.c
From: Rakib Mullick <rakib.mullick@gmail.com>

Due to commit dc326fca2b64 (x86, cpu: Clean up and unify the NOP selection infrastructure), we get the following warning:

arch/x86/kernel/ftrace.c: In function ‘ftrace_make_nop’:
arch/x86/kernel/ftrace.c:308:6: warning: assignment discards qualifiers from pointer target type
arch/x86/kernel/ftrace.c: In function ‘ftrace_make_call’:
arch/x86/kernel/ftrace.c:318:6: warning: assignment discards qualifiers from pointer target type

ftrace_nop_replace() now returns const unsigned char *, so change its associated function/variable to its compatible type to keep compiler clam.

[ updated for change of const void *src in probe_kernel_write() ]
