[PATCH v2] scsi: Make scsi_bus_type const

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Since commit d492cc2573a0 ("driver core: device.h: make struct
bus_type a const *"), the driver core can properly handle constant
struct bus_type, move the scsi_bus_type variable to be a constant
structure as well, placing it into read-only memory which can not be
modified at runtime.
