I just fixed it up

    RISC-V: Remove unused code from STRICT_KERNEL_RWX
    
    This patch removes the unused functions set_kernel_text_rw/ro.
    Currently, it is not being invoked from anywhere and no other architecture
    (except arm) uses this code. Even in ARM, these functions are not invoked
    from anywhere currently.
