Subject[PATCH 12/13] mm, memory_hotplug: fix the section mismatch warning
Date
From: Michal Hocko <mhocko@suse.com>

Tobias has reported following section mismatches introduced by "mm,
memory_hotplug: do not associate hotadded memory to zones until online".

WARNING: mm/built-in.o(.text+0x5a1c2): Section mismatch in reference from the function move_pfn_range_to_zone() to the function .meminit.text:memmap_init_zone()
The function move_pfn_range_to_zone() references
the function __meminit memmap_init_zone().
This is often because move_pfn_range_to_zone lacks a __meminit
annotation or the annotation of memmap_init_zone is wrong.

WARNING: mm/built-in.o(.text+0x5a25b): Section mismatch in reference from the function move_pfn_range_to_zone() to the function .meminit.text:init_currently_empty_zone()
The function move_pfn_range_to_zone() references
the function __meminit init_currently_empty_zone().
This is often because move_pfn_range_to_zone lacks a __meminit
annotation or the annotation of init_currently_empty_zone is wrong.

WARNING: vmlinux.o(.text+0x188aa2): Section mismatch in reference from the function move_pfn_range_to_zone() to the function .meminit.text:memmap_init_zone()
The function move_pfn_range_to_zone() references
the function __meminit memmap_init_zone().
This is often because move_pfn_range_to_zone lacks a __meminit
annotation or the annotation of memmap_init_zone is wrong.

WARNING: vmlinux.o(.text+0x188b3b): Section mismatch in reference from the function move_pfn_range_to_zone() to the function .meminit.text:init_currently_empty_zone()
The function move_pfn_range_to_zone() references
the function __meminit init_currently_empty_zone().
This is often because move_pfn_range_to_zone lacks a __meminit
annotation or the annotation of init_currently_empty_zone is wrong.

Both memmap_init_zone and init_currently_empty_zone are marked __meminit
but move_pfn_range_to_zone is used outside of __meminit sections (e.g.
devm_memremap_pages) so we have to hide it from the checker by __ref
annotation.
