    Subjectvirtio-net: new section mismatch warning. revert patch?
    With v2.6.32-rcX I started getting section mismatch warnings for
    make with CONFIG_DEBUG_SECTION_MISMATCH=y shows:

    WARNING: drivers/net/virtio_net.o(.data+0x90): Section mismatch in
    reference from the variable virtio_net to the function
    The variable virtio_net references
    the function __devexit virtnet_remove()
    If the reference is valid then annotate the
    variable with __exit* (see linux/init.h) or name the variable:
    *driver, *_template, *_timer, *_sht, *_ops, *_probe, *_probe_one, *_console,

    virtnet_remove was converted to devexit by this commit:

    commit 3d1285beff2e8467b8c3884d83b7a91a99aa9fcd

    move virtnet_remove to .devexit.text

    We didn't have these warnings in v2.6.31, so this is a regression.
