confused about "__PBL__" macro and whether it's actually used

  perusing arch/arm/mach-omap/omap3_generic.c and i noticed that the
initcall "omap3_gpio_init" is apparently invoked by the TI X-loader,
even though it *appears* to be protected by the macro:

#ifndef __PBL__
static int omap3_gpio_init(void)
... snip ...

  i assume __PBL__ is meant to refer to the "primary bootloader" --
that would be X-loader -- which suggests that that initcall shouldn't
be invoked by the X-loader as long as that macro is being defined

  am i misunderstanding something here?  i'm going to check the
makefiles to see if i'm just confused.
