    Add white list into modpost.c for memory hotplug code and ia64's machvec section · 72280ede

    This patch is add white list into modpost.c for some functions and
    ia64's section to fix section mismatchs.
      sparse_index_alloc() and zone_wait_table_init() calls bootmem allocator
      at boot time, and kmalloc/vmalloc at hotplug time. If config
      memory hotplug is on, there are references of bootmem allocater(init text)
      from them (normal text). This is cause of section mismatch.
      Bootmem is called by many functions and it must be
      used only at boot time. I think __init of them should keep for
      section mismatch check. So, I would like to register sparse_index_alloc()
      and zone_wait_table_init() into white list.
      In addition, ia64's .machvec section is function table of some platform
      dependent code. It is mixture of .init.text and normal text. These
      reference of __init functions are valid too.
