Subject[PATCH -tip v2 2/5] [CLEANUP] kprobes: Remove redundant text_mutex lock in optimize
Date
Remove text_mutex locking in optimize_all_kprobes, because
this function doesn't modify text. It simply queues probes on
optimization list for kprobe_optimizer worker thread.

Changes in v2:
- Update changelog.
- Add comments for (un)optimize_all_kprobes.
- Update kprobe_mutex comment.
