That was one of the reason it wasn't done in the first.
Also ftrace trampoline break w^x as well.
Not sure what is the plan for ftrace, but for bpf trampoline I'm going to switch
to text_poke (without _bp) once tip bits get merged during next merge window.
Then bpf trampoline will be allocated as ro+x and text_poke will be used instead of memcpy.
