I don't love that actual patch, there's a lot of churn just for one
flag.

But the idea is not so bad.

In fact I don't think we ever need to use the text_poke_area when we
call do_feature_fixups().

Most of the calls are in early boot.

The exception is for modules, but when we do the fixups *of the module*,
the module text is not mapped read only yet.

So I think we can just do something like below.

cheers
