[PATCH 1/5] ARM: add EXPORT_SYMBOL of hook_fault_code for PCI host modularization

In a discussion of a previous patch set[1], it was suggested that
modularizing some of the PCI host support would be good to keep
multi platform bzImage sizes smaller.

Two of the files that are candidates for conversion to tristate
from bool are:


However, doing the conversion reveals that they are going to fail
at modpost time since hook_fault_code isn't currently exported.

Since we are now going to export it we also need to remove the
__init tag, as the fcn needs to be present at insmod time.
