[ldns-users] Some selective const goodness for tsig

for ddns I need to use tsig. I track all my strings as const char * as
much as possible and find it inelegant to have to write something like
the following, especially since ldns either just stores the pointer and
never free()s it (ldns_tsig_credentials) or strdup()s it internally

/* they forgot to const them but they strdup them, so all is well */
ldns_resolver_set_tsig_algorithm(updres, (char *)algop->theirname);
ldns_resolver_set_tsig_keyname(updres, (char *)keyname);
ldns_resolver_set_tsig_keydata(updres, (char *)key);

So I const'ed tsig parameters as much as sensible in the attached patch.
I'd appreciate if this could be included.
