Yes that is the assignment I was referring to. Old value will work as well because
kvm holds a reference to this module while in the pqap_hook.

Just my curiosity: what would make this a bug? Is it the s390 elf ABI,
or some gcc feature, or even the C standard? Also how exactly would
WRITE_ONCE, also access via volatile help in this particular situation?

I agree, if the member is properly aligned, (which it is),
normally/probably we are fine on s390x (which is also a given).

Yes that works fine with me.
