Upon building the default Sequoia (AMCC-440EPx) configuration, the 
MODPOST step warns about section mismatches:
    WARNING: modpost: Found 5 section mismatch(es).
    To see full details build your kernel with:

After using the CONFIG_DEBUG_SECTION_MISMATCH option, the section 
mismatches are cases in one of the following:
  1) functions in the device initialization (.devinit) 
calls  routines which are contained in the .text section;
  2) functions in the device init section calls routines in the 
device exit section;
  3) data structures in the .data section contain pointers to 
functions in the .devinit section or .devexit section; (note that 
these data structures are used during initialization)

My question is, will this cause the code to malfunction?
