x86/boot/compressed/64: Fix warning for 32-bit trampoline memcpy()

GCC-8 warns that we copy TRAMPOLINE_32BIT_CODE_SIZE bytes from the pointer
to the function into actual trampoline, when that pointer is only 8 bytes:

  In file included from arch/x86/boot/compressed/pgtable_64.c:3:
  arch/x86/boot/compressed/pgtable_64.c: In function 'paging_prepare':
  arch/x86/boot/compressed/../string.h:18:23: error: '__builtin_memcpy' reading 
96 bytes from a region of size 8 [-Werror=stringop-overflow=]
   #define memcpy(d,s,l) __builtin_memcpy(d,s,l)
  arch/x86/boot/compressed/pgtable_64.c:62:2: note: in expansion of macro 
    memcpy(trampoline + TRAMPOLINE_32BIT_CODE_OFFSET / sizeof(unsigned long),

It turns out that the declaration is incorrect here: trampoline_32bit_src
is defined as a function in arch/x86/boot/compressed/head_64.S, not a
pointer to a function. Fixing the prototype to match addresses the warning.
