Maybe include a fixes tag?

Could you please explain why you introduced a new
CONFIG_ARCH_HAS_STRICT_MODULE_RWX #ifdef block instead of just moving
frob_text() and module_enable_x() outside of CONFIG_STRICT_MODULE_RWX?

I do not have anything against it, although the nested #ifdef's are a
bit painful to read. But I could not find a better way to do it :/
It's awkward because we need module_enable_x() and frob_text()
regardless of of CONFIG_STRICT_MODULE_RWX for x86, but other arches
don't need to call module_enable_x(), they usually just call the empty stub.

But I think having the CONFIG_ARCH_HAS_STRICT_MODULE_RWX block is OK,
for the reason of limiting the scope of the calls rather than
blanketly calling frob_text() andd module_enable_x() for arches that
don't need to call them. Was that your reasoning as well?

Thanks,

Jessica
