mipc tinyconfig and allnoconfig builds failed on stable-rc 5.10 branch

make --silent --keep-going --jobs=8

WARNING: modpost: vmlinux.o(.text+0x6a88): Section mismatch in
reference from the function reserve_exception_space() to the function
.meminit.text:memblock_reserve()
The function reserve_exception_space() references
the function __meminit memblock_reserve().
This is often because reserve_exception_space lacks a __meminit
annotation or the annotation of memblock_reserve is wrong.

FATAL: modpost: Section mismatches detected.
Set CONFIG_SECTION_MISMATCH_WARN_ONLY=y to allow them.

steps to reproduce:
---------------------------
# TuxMake is a command line tool and Python library that provides
# portable and repeatable Linux kernel builds across a variety of
# architectures, toolchains, kernel configurations, and make targets.
#
# TuxMake supports the concept of runtimes.
# See https://docs.tuxmake.org/runtimes/, for that to work it requires
# that you install podman or docker on your system.
#
# To install tuxmake on your system globally:
# sudo pip3 install -U tuxmake
#
# See https://docs.tuxmake.org/ for complete documentation.


tuxmake --runtime podman --target-arch mips --toolchain gcc-10
--kconfig tinyconfig
