This patch fixes a build failure[1] for the avr32 architecture which seems
to be introduced by commit d7627467b7a8
"Make do_execve() take a const filename pointer"

The commit changes the definition in arch/avr32/kernel/process.c but
forgot to change it here.

Signed-off-by: Peter Huewe <peterhuewe at gmx.de>
This build failure exists in linus' tree - added stable at kernel.org to the cc list
