Subject[PATCH v10 07/10] livepatch: Correctly handle atomic replace for not yet loaded modules
Date
The atomic replace feature uses dynamically allocated struct klp_func to
handle functions that will no longer be patched. These structures are
of the type KLP_FUNC_NOP. They cause the ftrace handler to jump to
the original code. But the address of the original code is not known
until the patched module is loaded.

This patch allows the late initialization. Also it adds a sanity check
into the ftrace handler.

Alternative solution would be not to set the address at all. The ftrace
handler could just return to the original code when NOP struct klp_func
is used. But this would require another changes. For example, in the stack
checking. Note that NOP structures might be available even when the patch
is being disabled. This would happen when the patch enable transition is
reverted.
