Subject[PATCH 08/17] x86/ftrace: set trampoline pages as executable
Date
From: Nadav Amit <namit@vmware.com>

Since alloc_module() will not set the pages as executable soon, we need
to do so for ftrace trampoline pages after they are allocated.

For the time being, we do not change ftrace to use the text_poke()
interface. As a result, ftrace breaks still breaks W^X.
