    Subject[PATCH 11/12] MISC: IOC4: Fix section mismatch / race condition.
    WARNING: drivers/misc/ioc4.o(.data+0x144): Section mismatch in reference from the variable ioc4_load_modules_work to the function .devinit.text:ioc4_load_modules()
    The variable ioc4_load_modules_work references
    the function __devinit ioc4_load_modules()
    If the reference is valid then annotate the
    variable with __init* or __refdata (see linux/init.h) or name the variable:
    *driver, *_template, *_timer, *_sht, *_ops, *_probe, *_probe_one, *_console

    This one is potencially fatal; by the time ioc4_load_modules is invoked
    it may already have been freed. For that reason ioc4_load_modules_work
    can't be turned to __devinitdata but also because it's referenced in
