For x86, we use text_poke_bp for updates which already does text_poke events
via text_poke_bp_batch.

It might be reasonable to assume other architectures will also need to put
updates through a common text poker which will take care of text_poke events.

The V3 patch had it in arch code but Steven Rostedt asked why it couldn't be
in ftrace_update)trampoline, so I moved it.
