Just remove the const. Problem solved.

Both cases of 'const' are totally arbitrary and useless. The
test_bit() one is literally a cast to const (admittedly also *from*
const, but nobody cares), and the atomic_read() one is just because it
uses a silly inline function where a macro would be simpler.
