Subject: [PATCH 0/3] constify char attribute_group structures

attribute_group are not supposed to change at runtime. All functions working with attribute_group provided by <linux/sysfs.h> work with const attribute_group. So mark the non-const structs as const.

Arvind Yadav (3):
[PATCH 1/3] char: tlclk: constify attribute_group structures.
[PATCH 2/3] char: tpm: constify attribute_group structures.
[PATCH 3/3] char: virtio: constify attribute_group structures.
