Subjectvirtio-net: new section mismatch warning. revert patch?
With v2.6.32-rcX I started getting section mismatch warnings for
virtio_net.
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
.devexit.text:virtnet_remove()
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
Author: Uwe Kleine-König <u.kleine-koenig@pengutronix.de>

move virtnet_remove to .devexit.text

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