Subject: [PATCH] hamradio: fix dmascc section mismatch

From: Randy Dunlap <>

cc: Klaus Kudielka <>

hw[] is used in both init and exit functions so it cannot be initdata
(section mismatch is when CONFIG_MODULES=n and CONFIG_DMASCC=y).

WARNING: vmlinux.o(.exit.text+0xba7): Section mismatch: reference to (between 'dmascc_exit' and 'sixpack_exit_driver')
