    SubjectTree sweep to fix up initconst
    This is a global tree sweep to fix up initconst section problems.

    Any variable const in initdata must be marked __initconst, not initdata.
    const __read_mostly is not allowed.

    Otherwise the global sections can get a read only marking and in some
    circumstances the compiler/and or the linker will detect conflicts.

    This patchkit aims to fix it up everywhere.

    Also available in git:// const-sections

    Note I plan to ask Linus to pull this directly.
