seccomp: switch system call argument type to void *
The const qualifier causes problems for any code that wants to write to the third argument of the seccomp syscall, as we will do in a future patch in this series. The third argument to the seccomp syscall is documented as void *, so rather than just dropping the const, let's switch everything to use void * as well. I believe this is safe because of 1. the documentation above, 2. there's no real type information exported about syscalls anywhere besides the man pages.
