Subject[PATCH 4.14 030/105] w90p910_ether: remove incorrect __init annotation
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


[ Upstream commit 51367e423c6501a26e67d91a655d2bc892303462 ]

The get_mac_address() function is normally inline, but when it is
not, we get a warning that this configuration is broken:

WARNING: vmlinux.o(.text+0x4aff00): Section mismatch in reference from the function w90p910_ether_setup() to the function .init.text:get_mac_address()
The function w90p910_ether_setup() references
the function __init get_mac_address().
This is often because w90p910_ether_setup lacks a __init

Remove the __init to make it always do the right thing.
