Hi all,

After merging the final tree, today's linux-next build (powerpc64
allnoconfig) produced this warning:

WARNING: vmlinux.o(.text+0x907a): Section mismatch in reference from the variable generic_secondary_common_init to the variable
The function generic_secondary_common_init() references
the variable __initdata boot_cpu_count.
This is often because generic_secondary_common_init lacks a __initdata 
annotation or the annotation of boot_cpu_count is wrong.

Caused by commit 9d07bc841c97 ("powerpc: Properly handshake CPUs going
out of boot spin loop").
