Subject[PATCH 1/3] constify struct attribute_group uses (against -mm)
.. as all consumers of it don't require it to be modifiable.

Unfortunately, due to the two-level constifications, this required
touching quite many files, not all of which I am able to test - please
bare with eventual mistakes or oversights.

The patch doesn't change all instances where 'const' could have been
added as a result of the base structure changes, only where either the
change has a real effect (the module loader doesn't enforce read-only
section attributes at present, so only built-in files matter) or where
compiler warnings would result otherwise.
