hexdump: use const notation
Trivial fix: mark the buffer to hexdump as const so callers could avoid casting their const buffers when calling print_hex_dump(). The patch is really trivial and I suggest to consider it as a fix (it fixes GCC warnings) and push it to current tree. Signed-off-by: Artem Bityutskiy <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
