SubjectRe: [PATCH] x86: make SMP locks handling interact properly with CONFIG_DEBUG_RODATA (2nd try)
Hi Andi,

I guess the patch I proposed there:
"Text Edit Lock"
http://www.ussg.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/0707.1/2980.html

solves the problem more generally than the patch discussed in this
thread. It provides locking (architecture independent) and correct
page protection (architecture dependent) for paravirt, alternatives
kprobes and, eventually, immediate values.
