Covered in another mail.

We have following code:
/* guarantee that calls that happen before init will not find a channel */
static struct chan_ref_percpu __initdata null_chan_ref[NR_CPUS];
static struct chan_ref_percpu *channel_table[] = {
DMA_TX_ARRAY_INIT(null_chan_ref)
};
The DMA_TX_ARRAY_INIT is some macro obscufation that serves no
real use and just hide a few assignements.
What happens here is that we assign channel_table a value
that are used as cover-up until the real assignment happens
in the init function.
So the only real way to fix this seems to remove the otherwise correct
__initdata mark on null_chan_ref.
Thats one pointer wasted pr. cpu (in total NR_CPUS).
