Subject: [PATCH v5 3/8] x86_64: Add LKDTM accessor for patching addr

When live patching with STRICT_KERNEL_RWX a mapping is installed at a
"patching address" with temporary write permissions. Provide a
LKDTM-only accessor function for this address in preparation for a LKDTM
test which attempts to "hijack" this mapping by writing to it from
another CPU.
