This line is not relevant once the patch gets committed.

Patch description should be readable independent of subject line so we
need to be more specific than "the structures"

I made fixes to commit description per above and here is the updated text.

"
ARM: davinci: make davinci_soc_info structures const

Make davinci_soc_info structures const as they are either passed to the
function davinci_common_init having the argument as const or their field
cpu_clks of type struct clk_lookup * is passed to the function
davinci_clk_init.

So, the fields are never modified and the structures can be const.

Done using Coccinelle.

With that I applied the patch to v4.16/fixes-non-critical
