Subject: modpost warning question

I'm seeing the following warning:

WARNING: vmlinux.o(.init.text+0x1acdc): Section mismatch: reference to
.exit.text:gfar_mdio_exit (between 'gfar_init' and 'gfar_mdio_init')

I don't understand why its not ok to access .exit.text from .init.text

The following addresses the issue, however I don't particularly like it:
