Subject: [PATCH] Modpost section mismatch fix

[Sorry if duplicate, one earlier was corrupt]

Hi,
     I got section mismatches reported by modpost in latest build. It got
     reported for xen_register_pirq and xen_unplug_emulated_devices
     functions. xen_register_pirq makes reference to
     acpi_sci_override_gsi in init.data section; marking
     xen_register_pirq with __init is not feasible since calls are made
     to it from acpi_register_gsi in non-init contexts. So marking it
     __refdata based on assumption that when acpi_sci_override_gsi is
     referenced, it is in  early stages where it is alive.
