Series libbpf: Fix cast away const qualifiers in btf.h | expand

Commit Message

I'm getting following errors when compiling with -Wcast-qual:

  bpf/btf.h: In function ‘btf_member* btf_members(const btf_type*)’:
  bpf/btf.h:264:36: warning: cast from type ‘const btf_type*’ to type
  ‘btf_member*’ casts away qualifiers [-Wcast-qual]
    264 |  return (struct btf_member *)(t + 1);
        |                                    ^

The argument is const so the cast to following struct btf_member
pointer should be const as well. Casting the const away in btf.c
call where it's correctly used without const in deduplication
code.
