Subject: [PATCH v2 13/18] sysctl: move sysctl type to ctl_table_header

In a future commit the sysctl core will only use
"const struct ctl_table". As a preparation for that move this mutable
field from "struct ctl_table" to "struct ctl_table_header".

This is also more correct in general as this is in fact a property of
the header and not the table itself.
