Hmm, this triggers:

WARNING: modpost: vmlinux.o(.text+0x1e7c2): Section mismatch in reference from the function elfcorehdr_alloc() to the variable .meminit.data:memblock
The function elfcorehdr_alloc() references
the variable __meminitdata memblock.
This is often because elfcorehdr_alloc lacks a __meminitdata
annotation or the annotation of memblock is wrong.

WARNING: modpost: vmlinux.o(.text+0x1e800): Section mismatch in reference from the function elfcorehdr_alloc() to the function .meminit.text:__next_mem_range()
The function elfcorehdr_alloc() references
the function __meminit __next_mem_range().
This is often because elfcorehdr_alloc lacks a __meminit
annotation or the annotation of __next_mem_range is wrong.

WARNING: modpost: vmlinux.o(.text+0x1e844): Section mismatch in reference from the function elfcorehdr_alloc() to the function .meminit.text:__next_mem_range()
The function elfcorehdr_alloc() references
the function __meminit __next_mem_range().
This is often because elfcorehdr_alloc lacks a __meminit
annotation or the annotation of __next_mem_range is wrong.

So, reverted again ;)
