    This should fix it:

    --- a/arch/x86/mm/pat.c~arch-x86-mm-patc-nopat-should-be-__init
    +++ a/arch/x86/mm/pat.c
    @@ -34,7 +34,7 @@ void __cpuinit pat_disable(char *reason)
    printk(KERN_INFO "%s\n", reason);
    }

    -static int nopat(char *str)
    +static int __init nopat(char *str)
    {
    pat_disable("PAT support disabled.");
    return 0;
    _

    It turns out that this was harmless. However it might not have been -
    I think that adding the ability to suppress all these warnings was a
    mistake.
