genetlink: allow making ops const
Allow making the ops array const by not modifying the ops flags on registration but rather only when ops are sent out in the family information. No users are updated yet except for the pre_doit/post_doit calls in wireless (the only ones that exist now.) Signed-off-by: Johannes Berg <johannes.berg@intel.com> Signed-off-by: David S.
