kbuild: whitelist references from __dbe_table to .init
This is needed on MIPS where the same mechanism as get_user() is used to intercept bus error exceptions for some hardware probes. Without this patch modpost will throw spurious warnings: LD vmlinux SYSMAP System.map SYSMAP .tmp_System.map MODPOST vmlinux WARNING: arch/mips/sgi-ip22/built-in.o(__dbe_table+0x0): Section mismatch: reference to .init.text: Signed-off-by: Ralf Baechle <ralf@linux-mips.org> Cc: Sam Ravnborg <sam@ravnborg.org> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
