SubjectRe: [2.5.63-bk6 compile error] __crc_page_states__per_cpu not in per-cpu section

It's a false positive from the script which checks whether all per-cpu
variables ended up in the correct section. __crc_page_states__per_cpu ends
in __per_cpu, that's why the script thinks it's a per-cpu variable, but
it's not, it's just a checksum.

Could you try if this patch fixes it, I don't really speak awk ;)

You should be able to reproduce the error by just doing "rm vmlinux; make
vmlinux", but not anymore after applying the patch below.
