Subject[PATCH v4 01/23] Fix "x86/alternatives: Lockdep-enforce text_mutex in text_poke*()"
Date
From: Nadav Amit <namit@vmware.com>

text_mutex is currently expected to be held before text_poke() is
called, but kgdb does not take the mutex, and instead *supposedly*
ensures the lock is not taken and will not be acquired by any other core
while text_poke() is running.

The reason for the "supposedly" comment is that it is not entirely clear
that this would be the case if gdb_do_roundup is zero.

Create two wrapper functions, text_poke() and text_poke_kgdb(), which do
or do not run the lockdep assertion respectively.

While we are at it, change the return code of text_poke() to something
meaningful. One day, callers might actually respect it and the existing
BUG_ON() when patching fails could be removed. For kgdb, the return
value can actually be used.
