parent[PATCH] i386: make apic probe function non-init (diff)
[PATCH] x86-64: modpost add more symbols to whitelist pattern2
o MODPOST generates warning for i386 if compiled with CONFIG_RELOCATABLE=y and serial console support is enabled. o Serial console setup function, serial8250_console_setup(), is a non __init function and it calls functions which are of type __init(). (uart_parse_options() and uart_set_options()). Assuming, setup will be called during init time, changing serial8250_console_setup() to __init. o Adding one more pattern to modpost whitelist. Console drivers might have *_console structures containing references to setup functions which can be of __init type. Don't generate warnings for those. WARNING: vmlinux - Section mismatch: reference to .init.text: from .data between 'serial8250_console' (at offset 0xc05a33d8) and 'serial8250_reg' Signed-off-by: Vivek Goyal <vgoyal@in.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Andi Kleen <ak@suse.de> Cc: "Eric W.
