Hi everyone! We're currently working on improving the TMS570 BSP, and
in the process we discovered an important bug caused by a misuse of
the RTEMS_DECONST macro. Said macro seems to be used in a few other
places throughout the code to bypass const restrictions.

What's the purpose of having something like this in the codebase?
Should it be removed to maintain const-correctness throughout the
