    Russell, the symbols are where the reference to an .init.text
    section are coming from, they are not the .init.text function
    being referenced itself.

    It is saying that something between rest_init and run_init_processes,
    which are not .init.text, are referencing an .init.text object.

    It's unfortunate that the .init.text object being referenced for some
    reason can't get the symbol printed out properly on ARM, it does get
    printed out on other platforms, but once you fix that it will be very
    easy for you to decode these messages.

    But they are still useful.

    The other one you posted was legitimate and as I explained just
    needs an exception entry added to modpost.c
