That's caused by 32bit mark_rodata_ro() doing:

set_ro(kernel_text)
kernel_set_to_readonly = 1;
set_ro(rodata);

kernel_set_to_readonly enables the protection mechanism in CPA and
consequently triggers the WARN_ON() telling that the existing PTE/PMD is
incorrect vs. static protections.

64bit does not trigger this because it makes kernel text and rodata
readonly in one go. There is no real reasons not to do so on 32bit, so the
fix is obvious.

Thanks,

tglx
