    Pull 'struct path' constification update from Al Viro:
     "'struct path' is passed by reference to a bunch of Linux security
      methods; in theory, there's nothing to stop them from modifying the
      damn thing and LSM community being what it is, sooner or later some
      enterprising soul is going to decide that it's a good idea.
      Let's remove the temptation and constify all of those..."
