[PATCH] drm/exynos: constify exynos_drm_crtc_ops structures

Declare exynos_drm_crtc_ops structures as const as they are only passed
as an argument to the function exynos_drm_crtc_create. This argument is
of type const struct exynos_drm_crtc_ops *, so exynos_drm_crtc_ops
structures having this property can be declared const.
Done using Coccinelle:

@r disable optional_qualifier@
identifier i;
position p;
static struct exynos_drm_crtc_ops i at p={...};

position p;
identifier r.i;
exynos_drm_crtc_create(...,&i at p,...)

position p!={r.p,ok.p};
identifier r.i;
i at p

@depends on !bad disable optional_qualifier@
identifier r.i;
struct exynos_drm_crtc_ops i;
