Subject: [PATCH bpf-next v2 07/10] bpf: lsm: Make the allocated callback RO+X

From: KP Singh <kpsingh@...gle.com>

This patch is not needed after arch_bpf_prepare_trampoline
moves to using text_poke.

The two IPI TLB flushes can be further optimized if a new API to handle
W^X in the kernel emerges as an outcome of:
