Patch to deconstify structure members in c-format.c

In c-format.c, various structures have the struct members themselves
marked as const.  This is redundant because when we assign static data
we mark the struct variable const also and this gets the data put in
the .rodata section by itself.

The redundancy is currently harmless, but if we want to also allocate
dynamic struct copies and assign their values, such as in extended
format checking, then the members should be mutable.  This is
necessary both in my incremental checking patch as well as in any
final extensible version, so I split it out.

Since the patch merely removes "const", but contains no behavior
changes, I bootstrapped C-only on sparc-sun-solaris2.7.  Using "size
-f", I ensured that all the data in c-format.o remained in the .rodata

Ok for mainline?
