Subject: [PATCH] Replace const to remove warnings
Date: Wed, 23 Apr 2003 15:01:04 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20030423200104.GA9189@debian> (raw)


I'd posted a patch a day or two ago which removed some __const__
declarations that GCC said were not needed. A reply to the posting
suggested that using __attribute__((const)) was the correct approach.
The attached patch adds the attribute.

Here's the initial mail for reference ...

I've built a kernel with this patch and it's running now - 2.5.68-bk?
from April 23

To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we
are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic
and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.
 -- Theodore Roosevelt, Kansas City Star, 1918
