Subject[PATCH] mm: meminit: mark init_reserved_page as __meminit
The function is called from __meminit context and calls other
__meminit functions but isn't it self mark as such today:

WARNING: vmlinux.o(.text.unlikely+0x4516): Section mismatch in reference from the function init_reserved_page() to the function .meminit.text:early_pfn_to_nid()
The function init_reserved_page() references
the function __meminit early_pfn_to_nid().
This is often because init_reserved_page lacks a __meminit
annotation or the annotation of early_pfn_to_nid is wrong.

On most compilers, we don't notice this because the function
gets inlined all the time. Adding __meminit here fixes the
harmless warning for the old versions and is generally the
correct annotation.

Fixes: 7e18adb4f80b ("mm: meminit: initialise remaining struct pages in parallel with kswapd")
