[PATCH] time: correct the prototype of ns_to_kernel_old_timeval and ns_to_timespec64

From: Youngmin Nam

In ns_to_kernel_old_timeval() definition,
the function argument is defined with const identifier in kernel/time/time.c,
but the prototype in include/linux/time32.h looks different.

- The function is defined in kernel/time/time.c as below:
struct __kernel_old_timeval ns_to_kernel_old_timeval(const s64 nsec)

- The function is decalared in include/linux/time32.h as below:
extern struct __kernel_old_timeval ns_to_kernel_old_timeval(s64 nsec);

Because the variable of arithmethic types isn't modified in the calling scope,
there's no need to mark arguments as const.
And there is a review in Link[1] why it was omitted during review stage,
so they should be matched.

Likewise, we can remove the "const" keyword in both definition and declaration
of ns_to_timespec64() as it was metentined below Link[2] and Link[3].
