Subject[PATCH 0/1 v3 nf-next] constify nf_conntrack_l3/4proto parameters
Date
When a nf_conntrack_l3/4proto parameter is not on the left hand side
of an assignment, its address is not taken, and it is not passed to a
function that may modify its fields, then it can be declared as const.

This change is useful from a documentation point of view, and can
possibly facilitate making some nf_conntrack_l4proto structures const
subsequently.

Done with the help of Coccinelle. The following semantic patch shows
the nf_conntrack_l3proto case.

virtual after_start

let unsafe = Hashtbl.create 101

let changed = ref false


(* The next three rules relate to the fact that we do not know the type of
void * variables. Fortunately this is only neede on the first iteration,
but it still means that the whole kernel will end up being considered. *)

v3:

Rebased against nf-next. Some functions, such as
nf_ct_l3proto_pernet_register, are no longer defined, so they are no longer
updated.
