That makes sense. However I've just tested a build with section mismatch
debugging enabled on ARM and there are a few more that need __init or
__devinit removed to get rid of the warnings:
pci_scan_root_bus() also needs __devinit removed. I haven't checked the
other architectures because I'll have to build cross-compilers for them
first, but I suspect most of them will have a similar list. I'm not sure
how well this kind of change is going to go down with the respective
architecture maintainers, though.

Agreed. Do you want me to take a look at this or would you rather tackle
