Subject[patch 14/17] Add text_poke and sync_core to powerpc
- Needed on architectures where we must surround live instruction modification
with "WP flag disable".
- Turns into a memcpy on powerpc since there is no WP flag activated for
instruction pages (yet..).
- Add empty sync_core to powerpc so it can be used in architecture independent
code.
