Building MIPS mtx1_defconfig results in:

  MODPOST 735 modules
WARNING: drivers/net/pcnet32.o(.devinit.text+0x11ec): Section mismatch in 
reference from the function pcnet32_probe_vlbus.constprop.22() to the variable
The function __devinit pcnet32_probe_vlbus.constprop.22() references
a variable __initdata pcnet32_portlist.
If pcnet32_portlist is only used by pcnet32_probe_vlbus.constprop.22 then
annotate pcnet32_portlist with a matching annotation.

Signed-off-by: Ralf Baechle <>

As recently discussed in the discussion of submission of a fix for a
similar bug in another driver remove __initdata rather than replace it
with __devinitdata.
