drivers/misc/ioc4.c: fix section mismatch / race condition
Fix this section mismatch: WARNING: drivers/misc/ioc4.o(.data+0x144): Section mismatch in reference from the variable ioc4_load_modules_work to the function .devinit.text:ioc4_load_modules() The variable ioc4_load_modules_work references the function __devinit ioc4_load_modules() If the reference is valid then annotate the variable with __init* or __refdata (see linux/init.h) or name the variable: *driver, *_template, *_timer, *_sht, *_ops, *_probe, *_probe_one, *_console This one is potentially fatal; by the time ioc4_load_modules is invoked it may already have been freed. For that reason ioc4_load_modules_work can't be turned to __devinitdata but also because it's referenced in ioc4_exit.
