the modular kernel fails to build:

Building modules, stage 2.
MODPOST 3571 modules

WARNING: drivers/scsi/fcoe/libfcoe.o(.init.text+0x1f): Section mismatch in reference from the function init_module() to the function .exit.text:fcoe_transport_exit()
The function __init init_module() references
a function __exit fcoe_transport_exit().
This is often seen when error handling in the init function
uses functionality in the exit path.
The fix is often to remove the __exit annotation of
fcoe_transport_exit() so it may be used outside an exit section.

WARNING: drivers/staging/ipack/bridges/tpci200.o(.data+0x28): Section mismatch in reference from the variable tpci200_pci_drv to the function .devexit.text:tpci200_pci_remove()
The variable tpci200_pci_drv references
the function __devexit tpci200_pci_remove()
If the reference is valid then annotate the
variable with __exit* (see linux/init.h) or name the variable:
*driver, *_template, *_timer, *_sht, *_ops, *_probe, *_probe_one, *_console
