pkt-line: drop 'const'-ness of a param to set_packet_header()
The function's definition has a paramter of type "int" qualified as "const". The fact that the incoming parameter is used as read-only in the fuction is an implementation detail that the callers should not have to be told in the prototype declaring it (and "const" there has no effect, as C passes parameters by value). The prototype defined for the function in pkt-line.h lacked the matching "const" for this reason, but apparently some compilers (e.g. MS Visual C 2017) complain about the parameter type mismatch. Let's squelch it by removing the "const" that is pointless in the definition of a small and trivial function like this, which would not help optimizing compilers nor reading humans that much.
