Subject: [PATCH] KVM: arm64: remove incorrect __init annotation

From: Arnd Bergmann <>

When hyp_cpu_pm_exit() is not inlined, it causes a link time warning:

WARNING: modpost: vmlinux.o(.text+0x39974): Section mismatch in reference from the function kvm_arch_init() to the function .init.text:hyp_cpu_pm_exit()
The function kvm_arch_init() references
the function __init hyp_cpu_pm_exit().
This is often because kvm_arch_init lacks a __init
annotation or the annotation of hyp_cpu_pm_exit is wrong.

This is not only called at boot time, so remove the annotation
to prevent undefined behavior in case it gets called after being
