Here's a fix suggested by Peter:

---
From: Borislav Petkov <bp@suse.de>
Subject: [PATCH] x86/ftrace: Mark ftrace_modify_code_direct() __ref

... because it calls the .init.text function text_poke_early(). That is
ok because it does call that function early, during boot.

Fixes: 9706f7c3531f ("x86/ftrace: Use text_poke()")
