Subjectconst __init

Since a while include/linux/init.h contains the line

* Also note, that this data cannot be "const".

Why is this? Because const data will be put in a different section?

However, quite some code defines const __init variables (see list below).

So what should be done now?
1. Remove const from __initdata variables
2. Make __inidata work with const variables

FWIW, many sources still use __init for data, while it should be __initdata.
