Subject[PATCH 21/33] kbuild: whitelist references from variables named _timer to .init.text
Date
arm uses a lot of ops structures named *_timer that has legitimite
references to .init.text.
So let's add this variable to the list of variables that may reference
.init.text without causing any warning.
