Subject[PATCH v3 2/4] arm64: kprobes: Remove unneeded RODATA check
Date
Remove unneeded RODATA check from arch_prepare_kprobe().

Since check_kprobe_address_safe() already ensured that
the probe address is in kernel text, we don't need to
check whether the address in RODATA or not. That must
be always false.
