      kernel: delete __cpuinit usage from all core kernel files · 0db0628d
      Paul Gortmaker authored
      The __cpuinit type of throwaway sections might have made sense
      some time ago when RAM was more constrained, but now the savings
      do not offset the cost and complications.  For example, the fix in
      commit 5e427ec2 ("x86: Fix bit corruption at CPU resume time")
      is a good example of the nasty type of bugs that can be created
      with improper use of the various __init prefixes.
      
      After a discussion on LKML[1] it was decided that cpuinit should go
      the way of devinit and be phased out.  Once all the users are gone,
      we can then finally remove the macros themselves from linux/init.h.
      
      This removes all the uses of the __cpuinit macros from C files in
      the core kernel directories (kernel, init, lib, mm, and include)
      that don't really have a specific maintainer.
