SubjectTree sweep to fix up initconst
Date
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://github.com/andikleen/linux-misc.git const-sections

Note I plan to ask Linus to pull this directly.
