[PATCH] lib/string.c cleanup: restore useful memmove const
A couple of (char *) casts removed in a previous cleanup patch in lib/string.c:memmove() were actually useful, as they suppressed a couple of warnings: assignment discards qualifiers from pointer target type Fix by declaring the local variable const in the first place, so casts aren't needed to strip the const qualifier.
