Subject: [PATCH] landlock: Drop "const" argument qualifier to avoid GCC 4.9 warnings

When building under GCC 4.9, the compiler warns about const mismatches:

security/landlock/ruleset.c: In function 'insert_rule':
security/landlock/ruleset.c:196:34: error: passing argument 2 of 'create_rule' from incompatible pointer type [-Werror]
   new_rule = create_rule(object, &this->layers, this->num_layers,
                                  ^
security/landlock/ruleset.c:69:30: note: expected 'const struct landlock_layer ** const' but argument is of type 'struct landlock_layer (*)[]'
 static struct landlock_rule *create_rule(
                              ^
security/landlock/ruleset.c: In function 'landlock_insert_rule':
security/landlock/ruleset.c:240:38: error: passing argument 3 of 'insert_rule' from incompatible pointer type [-Werror]
  return insert_rule(ruleset, object, &layers, ARRAY_SIZE(layers));
                                      ^
security/landlock/ruleset.c:144:12: note: expected 'const struct landlock_layer ** const' but argument is of type 'struct landlock_layer (*)[1]'
 static int insert_rule(struct landlock_ruleset *const ruleset,
            ^

Drop "const" from the function definition.
