SubjectRe: [BUGFIX][PATCH -tip] x86: fix text_poke to handle highmem pages

Hrm, can you remind me what would be the downside of using kmap_atomic
in every scenarios (highmem and non-highmem) then ?

I would try to avoid "special cases" as much as possible, because they
just make problems harder to reproduce.

The idea would be to either add fixmap highmem support, or to simply use
kmap_atomic() for all cases until we add fixmap highmem support.
