Oh right. Well those comments are minor so I'll just fold them in given
that I'm rewinding clk-fixes today. I see that comment in init.h about
uninitialized variables and __initdata too. I found this 10 year old
thread about that [1]. At least with my gcc-4.9 arm compiler I don't see
uninitialized __initdata moved to bss. A workaround seems to be to
initialize it to NULL in this case, but maybe that doesn't matter
because compilers don't have that problem anymore.
