Subject[PATCH] arm64/module: use mod->klp_info section header information
The arm64 module loader keeps a pointer into info->sechdrs to keep track
of section header information for .plt section(s). A pointer to the
relevent section header (struct elf64_shdr) in info->sechdrs is stored
in mod->arch.{init,core}.plt. This pointer may be accessed while
applying relocations in apply_relocate_add() for example. And unlike
normal modules, livepatch modules can call apply_relocate_add() after
module load. But the info struct (and therefore info->sechdrs) gets
freed at the end of load_module() and so mod->arch.{init,core}.plt
becomes an invalid pointer after the module is done loading.

Luckily, livepatch modules already keep a copy of Elf section header
information in mod->klp_info. So make sure livepatch modules on arm64
have access to the section headers in klp_info and set
mod->arch.{init,core}.plt to the appropriate section header in
mod->klp_info so that they can call apply_relocate_add() even after
module load.

Hi!

This patch may be applied on top or merged with the 3rd patch. I
incoporated Miroslav's suggestions from the discussion. It's needed in
order for livepatch modules on arm64 to be able to call
apply_relocate_add() post-module-load, otherwise we could end up
accessing invalid pointers from apply_relocate_add().
