I am also getting some section mismatch warnings like this:

WARNING: drivers/mtd/ubi/ubi.o(.data+0x1c0): Section mismatch in reference from the variable __ops_mtd to the function .init.text:ubi_mtd_param_parse()
The variable __ops_mtd references
the function __init ubi_mtd_param_parse()
If the reference is valid then annotate the
variable with __init* or __refdata (see linux/init.h) or name the variable:
*driver, *_template, *_timer, *_sht, *_ops, *_probe, *_probe_one, *_console, 

Which are probably also related to the above change.
