Subject: [PATCH v2 09/17] lib/list_sort: fix function type mismatches

Casting the comparison function to a different type trips indirect
call Control-Flow Integrity (CFI) checking. Remove the additional
consts from cmp_func, and the now unneeded casts.

Fixes: 043b3f7b6388 ("lib/list_sort: simplify and remove MAX_LIST_LENGTH_BITS")
