After using __cpuinit in function 'init_thread_xstate(void)', the
following warning was generated.

WARNING: arch/x86/kernel/built-in.o(.cpuinit.text+0x29c): Section
mismatch in reference from the function init_thread_xstate() to the
function .init.text:xsave_cntxt_init()
The function __cpuinit init_thread_xstate() references
a function __init xsave_cntxt_init().
If xsave_cntxt_init is only used by init_thread_xstate then
annotate xsave_cntxt_init with a matching annotation.
