[PATCH] Section mismatch: acpi_early_processor_set_pdc()

From: Marin Mitov
Date: Wed Jan 13 2010 - 15:45:43 EST

Hi all,

kernel-2.6.33-rc4, compiler output:

WARNING: Section mismatch in reference from the function
acpi_early_processor_set_pdc() to the variable .cpuinit.data:processor_idle_dmi_table
The function acpi_early_processor_set_pdc() references
the variable __cpuinitdata processor_idle_dmi_table.
This is often because acpi_early_processor_set_pdc lacks a __cpuinitdata
annotation or the annotation of processor_idle_dmi_table is wrong.

acpi_early_processor_set_pdc() is invoked only from __init acpi_bus_init()
Mark it __cpuinit.

The patch is against 2.6.33-rc4
