Subject: mm/sparse.c: mark populate_section_memmap as __meminit

Building the kernel on s390 with -Og produces the following warning:

WARNING: vmlinux.o(.text+0x28dabe): Section mismatch in reference from the function populate_section_memmap() to the function .meminit.text:__populate_section_memmap()
The function populate_section_memmap() references
the function __meminit __populate_section_memmap().
This is often because populate_section_memmap lacks a __meminit
annotation or the annotation of __populate_section_memmap is wrong.

While -Og is not supported, in theory this might still happen with another
compiler or on another architecture.  So fix this by using the correct
section annotations.
