    Thanks for the report Marcin.

    We have a lot of section mismatch warnings at present.
    I am personally awaiting merge of x86.git and first
    batch from Andrew Morton before I start to fix them.

    This is for two reasons:
    1) I know several warnings are fixed in the two trees
    2) I expect these two merges to touch a lot of the files
    where I need to fix the warnings.

    Can you please repost no earlier than when you see -rc1. I hope that
    my builds get down below 25 warnings when we get there (> 120 warnings
    when I did a full build last time).
