Subject[PATCH] Text Edit Lock - kprobes architecture independent support (v3)
Use the mutual exclusion provided by the text edit lock in the kprobes code. It
allows coherent manipulation of the kernel code by other subsystems.

Changelog:

Move the kernel_text_lock/unlock out of the for loops.
Use text_mutex directly instead of a function.
Remove whitespace modifications.

(note : kprobes_mutex is always taken outside of text_mutex)
