That's odd, this should be copying a piece of kernel data (not text)
to userspace.

from fs/binfmt_elf.c

        const char *k_platform = ELF_PLATFORM;

...
                size_t len = strlen(k_platform) + 1;

                u_platform = (elf_addr_t __user *)STACK_ALLOC(p, len);
                if (__copy_to_user(u_platform, k_platform, len))
                        return -EFAULT;

from arch/arm/include/asm/elf.h:

#define ELF_PLATFORM_SIZE 8
#define ELF_PLATFORM    (elf_platform)

extern char elf_platform[];

from arch/arm/kernel/setup.c:

char elf_platform[ELF_PLATFORM_SIZE];
EXPORT_SYMBOL(elf_platform);

...

        snprintf(elf_platform, ELF_PLATFORM_SIZE, "%s%c",
                 list->elf_name, ENDIANNESS);

How does that end up in the .text section of the
image, instead of in one of the various data sections?

What kind of linker oddity is going on with ARM?
