    tools/ocaml: Fix stubs build when OCaml has been compiled with -safe-string
    The OCaml code has been fixed to handle properly -safe-string in Xen
    4.11, however the stubs part were missed.
    On OCaml newer than 4.06.1, String_Val() will return a const char *
    when using -safe-string leading to build failure when this is used
    in place where char * is expected.
    The main use in Xen code base is when a new string is allocated. The
    suggested approach by the OCaml community [1] is to use the helper
    caml_alloc_initialized_string() but it was introduced by OCaml 4.06.1.
    The next best approach is to cast String_val() to (char *) as the helper
    would have done. So use it when we need to update the new string using
    Take the opportunity to remove the unnecessary cast of the source as
    mempcy() is expecting a void *.
