Subject: Re: [PATCH] Bluetooth: 6lowpan: Make variable header_ops constant

Hi Nishka,

> Static variable header_ops, of type header_ops, is used only once, when

> This corresponding field is declared as const in the definition of
> net_device. Hence make header_ops constant as well to protect it from
