Hard to argue given that I just deleted include/asm-generic/vmlinux.lds.h,
touched kernel/rcu/rcutorture.c, and rebuilt the corresponding .ko
without errors. ;-)

Hmmm... Is there some way to place a section into a read-only page,
for example, tagged onto the text section for that module? That would
get rid of a class of bugs, if nothing else.

Please do resend as a formal patch with the above in the commit log.
I doubt that I am the only one needing a bit of module-build education!
And thank you for providing that education, by the way!

Done, and thank you for giving it a go!
