This means the update to modify the call to mcount to a nop failed.
Everything else passed (the read and compare). I think I saw some
patches go by that works on making the text in modules read only.

The ftrace update for text in core kernel makes the text writable for
the small window where we call kstop machine and update the text. Then
it makes that code read only again. At the time this code was written,
the modules were always read/write. If this has changed, I believe the
ftrace update needs to be fixed too.
