OK, I will add it in v2.

If CONFIG_STRICT_MODULE_RWX is not defined, it has two reasons, one is
that the
arch don't have strict module rwx and the other reason is that
CONFIG_STRICT_MODULE_RWX
is disabled. So I introduce CONFIG_ARCH_HAS_STRICT_MODULE_RWX #ifdef
block to
distinguish this two cases.

Yes, you are right.
Actually, I was thinking moving all frob_* outside of
CONFIG_STRICT_MODULE_RWX,
because they all should be regardless of of CONFIG_STRICT_MODULE_RWX.
But current
only frob_next() is used, move other frob_* outside of
CONFIG_STRICT_MODULE_RWX
will cause a compile warning if CONFIG_STRICT_MODULE_RWX is disabled, so
I left them
in CONFIG_STRICT_MODULE_RWX. We can move them outside of
CONFIG_STRICT_MODULE_RWX
if they are used in future.

Yes, it's my reasoning.
