Right. __add_pages which used to call memmap_init_zone before
is __ref (to hide it the checker) which is not the case for
move_pfn_range_to_zone. I cannot say I would see the point of separating
all meminit functions because they are not going away but using __ref
for move_pfn_range_to_zone should be as safe as __add_pages is.

and this is the same thing. Thanks a lot. The following patch should fix
it. I will keep it separate to have a reference why this has been
done...

Subject: [PATCH] mm, hotplug: fix the section mismatch warning

Tobias has reported following section mismatches introduced by "mm,
memory_hotplug: do not associate hotadded memory to zones until online".

WARNING: mm/built-in.o(.text+0x5a1c2): Section mismatch in reference from the function move_pfn_range_to_zone() to the function .meminit.text:memmap_init_zone()
The function move_pfn_range_to_zone() references
the function __meminit memmap_init_zone().
This is often because move_pfn_range_to_zone lacks a __meminit
annotation or the annotation of memmap_init_zone is wrong.

WARNING: mm/built-in.o(.text+0x5a25b): Section mismatch in reference from the function move_pfn_range_to_zone() to the function .meminit.text:init_currently_empty_zone()
The function move_pfn_range_to_zone() references
the function __meminit init_currently_empty_zone().
This is often because move_pfn_range_to_zone lacks a __meminit
annotation or the annotation of init_currently_empty_zone is wrong.

WARNING: vmlinux.o(.text+0x188aa2): Section mismatch in reference from the function move_pfn_range_to_zone() to the function .meminit.text:memmap_init_zone()
The function move_pfn_range_to_zone() references
the function __meminit memmap_init_zone().
This is often because move_pfn_range_to_zone lacks a __meminit
annotation or the annotation of memmap_init_zone is wrong.

WARNING: vmlinux.o(.text+0x188b3b): Section mismatch in reference from the function move_pfn_range_to_zone() to the function .meminit.text:init_currently_empty_zone()
The function move_pfn_range_to_zone() references
the function __meminit init_currently_empty_zone().
This is often because move_pfn_range_to_zone lacks a __meminit
annotation or the annotation of init_currently_empty_zone is wrong.

Both memmap_init_zone and init_currently_empty_zone are marked __meminit
but move_pfn_range_to_zone is used outside of __meminit sections (e.g.
devm_memremap_pages) so we have to hide it from the checker by __ref
annotation.
