Use separate sections for __dev/__cpu/__mem code/data
Introducing separate sections for __dev* (HOTPLUG), __cpu* (HOTPLUG_CPU) and __mem* (MEMORY_HOTPLUG) allows us to do a much more reliable Section mismatch check in modpost. We are no longer dependent on the actual configuration of for example HOTPLUG. This has the effect that all users see much more Section mismatch warnings than before because they were almost all hidden when HOTPLUG was enabled. The advantage of this is that when building a piece of code then it is much more likely that the Section mismatch errors are spotted and the warnings will be felt less random of nature.
