kernel/hung_task.c: make type annotations consistent

Commit 32927393dc1c ("sysctl: pass kernel pointers to ->proc_handler")
removed various __user annotations from function signatures as part of
its refactoring.

It also removed the __user annotation for proc_dohung_task_timeout_secs()
at its declaration in sched/sysctl.h, but not at its definition in

Hence, sparse complains:

  kernel/hung_task.c:271:5: error: symbol 'proc_dohung_task_timeout_secs' redeclared with different type (incompatible argument 3 (different address spaces))

Adjust the annotation at the definition fitting to that refactoring to make
sparse happy again, which also resolves this warning from sparse:

  kernel/hung_task.c:277:52: warning: incorrect type in argument 3 (different address spaces)
  kernel/hung_task.c:277:52:    expected void *
  kernel/hung_task.c:277:52:    got void [noderef] __user *buffer

No functional change. No change in object code.
