[PATCH v3 2/4] iio: adc: at91_adc: const-ify some driver data

The main intent is to get rid of the cast for the void-pointer returned by

This requires const-ifying the 'caps' and 'registers' references on the
at91_adc_state struct.

The caps can be obtained also from the old platform_data (in the
at91_adc_probe_pdata() function), but that cast is not touched in this
patch, since the old platform_data should be removed/cleaned-away.
Also, that cast deals with converting a kernel_ulong_t type to a pointer.
So, updating that cast doesn't yield any benefit.
