Subject[RFC PATCH 2/8] netfilter: Avoid assigning 'const' pointer to non-const pointer
Date
nf_remove_net_hook() uses WRITE_ONCE() to assign a 'const pointer to a
'non-const' pointer. Cleanups to the implementation of WRITE_ONCE() mean
that this will give rise to a compiler warning, just like a plain old
assignment would do:

| In file included from ./include/linux/export.h:43,
| from ./include/linux/linkage.h:7,
| from ./include/linux/kernel.h:8,
| from net/netfilter/core.c:9:
| net/netfilter/core.c: In function ‘nf_remove_net_hook’:
| ./include/linux/compiler.h:216:30: warning: assignment discards ‘const’ qualifier from pointer target type [-Wdiscarded-qualifiers]
| *(volatile typeof(x) *)&(x) = (val); \
| ^
| net/netfilter/core.c:379:3: note: in expansion of macro ‘WRITE_ONCE’
| WRITE_ONCE(orig_ops[i], &dummy_ops);
| ^~~~~~~~~~

Follow the pattern used elsewhere in this file and add a cast to 'void *'
to squash the warning.
