Don't put "linux_banner" in the .init section
It might save a few bytes after bootup, but it causes the string to be linked in at the end of the final vmlinux image, which defeats the whole point of doing all this, namely allowing some broken user-space binaries to search for the kernel version string in the kernel binary. So just remove the __init specifier.
