x86: Fix alternatives and kprobes to remap write-protected kernel text
Reenable kprobes and alternative patching when the kernel text is write protected by DEBUG_RODATA Add a general utility function to change write protected text. The new function remaps the code using vmap to write it and takes care of CPU synchronization. It also does CLFLUSH to make icache recovery faster. There are some limitations on when the function can be used, see the comment. This is a newer version that also changes the paravirt_ops code. text_poke also supports multi byte patching now. Contains bug fixes from Zach Amsden and suggestions from Mathieu Desnoyers.
