Subject: [PATCH] VSOCK: Drop bogus __init annotation from vsock_init_tables()

If gcc (e.g. 4.1.2) decides not to inline vsock_init_tables(), this will
cause a section mismatch:

WARNING: net/vmw_vsock/vsock.o(.text+0x1bc): Section mismatch in reference from the function __vsock_core_init() to the function .init.text:vsock_init_tables()
The function __vsock_core_init() references
the function __init vsock_init_tables().
This is often because __vsock_core_init lacks a __init
annotation or the annotation of vsock_init_tables is wrong.

This may cause crashes if VSOCKETS=y and VMWARE_VMCI_VSOCKETS=m.
