you are right according to the documentation, but objdump -s always shows that 
it gets put into the .rodata section. So this patch has no effect, because 
result is always same (and wrong). It's also possible that I'm doing something 
wrong :-) Btw, there are hundreds of such __initdata misplacement in the 
kernel.
