checkpatch: fix false positive on __initconst
checkpatch falsely complained about '__initconst' because it thought the 'const' needed a space before. Fix this by changing the list of attributes: - add '__initconst' - force plain 'init' to contain a word-boundary at the end Signed-off-by: Wolfram Sang <w.sang@pengutronix.de> Cc: Andy Whitcroft <apw@shadowen.org> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
