The macro __init used in function 'init_thread_xstate' is not
appropriate. It should be __cpuinit , because it's been called from
__cpuinit functions several times ( I myself found twice, once from
'cpu_init' and other is from 'fpu_init'). Thus produces the following

WARNING: arch/x86/kernel/built-in.o(.cpuinit.text+0x2237): Section
mismatch in reference from the function cpu_init() to the function
The function __cpuinit cpu_init() references
a function __init init_thread_xstate().
If init_thread_xstate is only used by cpu_init then
annotate init_thread_xstate with a matching annotation.

This patch fixes the above warning. If anything else please notice.
