Sorry, I didn't see this earlier. Do we need to add all these consts
here? So you want the pointers to be const but why is 'shift' special
and not a const then? Is it modified later?

Would this not work:

struct reg_desc {
const char *name;
u64 *val;
u64 *mask;
struct {
const char *name;
u8 shift;
} fields[];
};

> +static const struct reg_desc * const regs[] __initdata = {

as we already declare the whole struct reg_desc pointers here as const.
I may have confused myself...
