[PATCH 6/7] powerpc: asm/io.h: Expect immutable pointer in virt_to_phys prototype

These helper function - virt_to_phys - doesn't need the address pointer to
be mutable.

In the same time expecting it to be mutable leads to the following build
warning for constant pointers:

  warning: passing argument 1 of ‘virt_to_phys’ discards ‘const’ qualifier from pointer target type
