It's isa_bridge_notify(), which is neither within _[se]text nor
_[se]inittext, so the core_kernel_text() function disavows it.

Where are __devinit functions supposed to end up?

$ egrep _[es]init\|_[es]text\|isa_bridge_notify System.map
c000000000000000 T _stext
c00000000045d000 T _etext
c000000000463ca8 t .isa_bridge_notify
c00000000063a000 T _sinittext
c00000000067c3bc T _einittext
c00000000071fd80 d isa_bridge_notify
