[PATCH 00/17] mark const init data with __initconst instead of __initdata

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


this series fixes a common error to use __initdata to mark const
variables. Most of the time this works well enough to go unnoticed
(though I wonder why the linker doesn't warn about that).
Just try adding something like

	int something __initdata;

to one of the patched files and compile to see the error.

While touching these annotations I also corrected the position where it
was wrong to go between the variable name and the =.

Note this series is not compile tested.

Best regards
