Re: BUG: sleeping function called from invalid context at kernel/fork.c:385

I see many many section mismatches when compiling with gcc 4.1 and
binutils 2.17.50.20070426   They appear to be from .sdata to
.init.data.

This is with basic zx1_defconfig with a few mods.

The reason appears to be compiler weirdness..


WARNING: init/built-in.o(.sdata+0x30): Section mismatch: reference to .init.data:ino (after 'root_mountflags')

(initramfs.s contains a 32-word table `head'.  Code like:
	static __initdata struct hash {..} *head[32];

	for (p = head; p < head + 32; p++)
is generating:
  .section .sdata
L24:
	.data8 head#+256


Rather than adding 256 to head at run time, the compiler loads L24 and
uses that for the comparison.  This triggers the warning.
