I was thinking of doing this in a full conversion over the full kernel
tree in separate patch(es) after the 7th (maybe for v3?). In
particular, aligned and section have a lot of them:
  * 349 ((aligned
  * 66 ((__aligned
  * 76 ((section
  * 48 ((__section

As well as others like:
  * 218 ((unused
  * 14 ((__unused

But indeed, good catches! These ones I can do it directly here since I
am editing them anyway.

Thanks a lot!
