Subject: Re: [PATCH] remove __net_initdata attribute

Dave, I am sorry, plz disregard the patch :(

- if the file is a part of the kernel, __exit (and pernet_unregister)
  will never called and should be dropped
- if the file is a part of a module, __init is NOT dropped on the
  module loading stage

So, we can still make embedded people happy :) Thanks Pavel to pointing
me this out.
