    Subject[PATCH for review] [2/48] i386: fix section mismatch warning in intel_cacheinfo

    From: Sam Ravnborg <>

    Fix following warning:
    WARNING: arch/i386/kernel/built-in.o(.init.text+0x3818): Section mismatch: reference to .exit.text:cache_remove_dev (between 'cacheinfo_cpu_callback' and 'cache_sysfs_init')

    It points out that a function marked __cpuexit is calling a function marked
    __cpuinit => oops.

    The call happens only in an error-condition which may explain why we have
    not seen it before.

    The offending function was not used anywhere else - so marked it __cpuexit.

    Note: This warning triggers only with a local copy of modpost
    but that version will soon be pushed out.
