attribute_groups are not supposed to change at runtime. All functions
working with attribute_groups provided by <linux/sysfs.h> work
with const attribute_group. So mark the non-const structs as const.
I think it's good you are doing all of these.

Instead of individually sending these patches, could you
please send a patch series for all of these attribute_group
patches with a cover letter at the same time?

That could make it easier for a trivial maintainer to apply
all of these at once and not get some applied and others
ignored or dropped on the floor.

Once again, I will send all of patch together, But I have doubt. If it's
different maintainer. Example- 'net:' subsystem is having a different
maintainer. So do i need to add all the maintainer in single list. Which
can confuse
what patch is for what maintainer. Please suggest me.
Please send individual patches, one per maintainer/subsystem
as a series with a cover letter like:

[PATCH 0/N] treewide: constify attribute_group structures
[PATCH 1/N] chelsio: cxgb3: constify attribute_group
[PATCH 2/N] chelsio: cxgb4: constify attribute_group
[PATCH N/N] subsystem: constify attribute_group

Thank you, I will follow as per your suggestion.
