mm/memory_hotplug: fix section mismatch
Hidetoshi Seto [Tue, 17 Nov 2009 22:06:18 +0000 (14:06 -0800)]
With CONFIG_MEMORY_HOTPLUG I got following warning:

WARNING: vmlinux.o(.text+0x1276b0): Section mismatch in reference from
the function hotadd_new_pgdat() to the function
.meminit.text:free_area_init_node()
The function hotadd_new_pgdat() references
the function __meminit free_area_init_node().
This is often because hotadd_new_pgdat lacks a __meminit
annotation or the annotation of free_area_init_node is wrong.

Use __ref to fix this.
