Hm.  I suppose using ftrace_lock might be less risky since that lock is
only used internally by ftrace (up until now).  But I think it would
also make less sense because the text_mutex is supposed to protect code
patching.  And presumably ftrace_lock is supposed to be ftrace-specific.

Here's the latest patch, still using text_mutex.  I added some lockdep
assertions to ensure the permissions toggling functions are always
called with text_mutex.  It's running through 0-day right now.  I can
try to run it through various tests with CONFIG_LOCKDEP.

Subject: [PATCH] livepatch: Fix ftrace module text permissions race

It's possible for livepatch and ftrace to be toggling a module's text
permissions at the same time, resulting in the following panic:

  BUG: unable to handle page fault for address: ffffffffc005b1d9
  #PF: supervisor write access in kernel mode

The above panic occurs when loading two modules at the same time with
ftrace enabled, where at least one of the modules is a livepatch module:

CPU0					CPU1
klp_enable_patch()
  klp_init_object_loaded()
    module_disable_ro()
    					ftrace_module_enable()
					  ftrace_arch_code_modify_post_process()
				    	    set_all_modules_text_ro()
      klp_write_object_relocations()
        apply_relocate_add()
	  *patches read-only code* - BOOM

A similar race exists when toggling ftrace while loading a livepatch
module.

Fix it by ensuring that the livepatch and ftrace code patching
operations -- and their respective permissions changes -- are protected
by the text_mutex.
