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;
_
