Subject[patch 27/71] x86: Fix 27-rc crash on vsmp due to paravirt during module load
2.6.26-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us
know.

------------------
From: Ravikiran Thirumalai <kiran@scalex86.org>
commit 05e12e1c4c09cd35ac9f4e6af1e42b0036375d72 upstream.

vsmp_patch has been marked with __init ever since pvops, however,
apply_paravirt can be called during module load causing calls to
freed memory location.

Since apply_paravirt can only be called during bootup and module load,
mark vsmp patch with "__init_or_module"
