Hello,

This series implements the stop_machine()-less ftrace code patching
for s390. It's trickier than that of e.g. Intel, because the only
on-the-fly code patching allowed by s390 is changing a mask of a
conditional branch instruction. Patch 1 contains a new common code hook
that we need for that, patch 2 contains the actual implementation as
well as explanation of all the small details.

We would like to take this series through the s390 tree, and we need a
review on the patch 1 for that. Could you please take a look?

Best regards,
Ilya
