This turns out to be the old OF code that can now be hit on x86 when
CONFIG_OF=y because it defines HAVE_IMA_KEXEC. I suspect the warning
already exists on ARM64/PowerPC. Fix is to mark those functions up in
the same manner as the new x86 variants.

Below is on top of what was in tip; I can roll a v7 if preferred but
I think seeing the fix on its own is clearer.

ima_free_kexec_buffer() calls into memblock_phys_free() so must be
annotated __meminit. Equally ima_kexec_get_buffer() is executed during
__init so can be marked as such. This was already done in the new x86
IMA kexec passing functions but not for the pre-existing OF based
