Subject[PATCH] [29/36] CPA: Only unmap kernel init pages in text mapping when CONFIG_DEBUG_RODATA is set
Date

Otherwise the kernel will likely always run with 4K pages instead of 2MB pages,
which is costly in terms of TLBs.

Also optimize it a little bit by using only a single change_page_attr() calls.
This is particularly useful if debugging is enabled inside it because it spams
the logs much less.
