Subject: [RFC PATCH] lkdtm: Replace lkdtm_rodata_do_nothing() by do_nothing()

All EXEC tests are based on running a copy of do_nothing()
except lkdtm_EXEC_RODATA which uses a different function
called lkdtm_rodata_do_nothing().

On architectures using function descriptors, EXEC tests are
performed using execute_location() which is a function
that most of the time copies do_nothing() at the tested
location then duplicates do_nothing() function descriptor
and updates it with the address of the copy of do_nothing().

But for EXEC_RODATA test, execute_location() uses
lkdtm_rodata_do_nothing() which is already in rodata section
at build time instead of using a copy of do_nothing(). However
it still uses the function descriptor of do_nothing(). There
is a risk that running lkdtm_rodata_do_nothing() with the
function descriptor of do_thing() is wrong.

To remove the above risk, change the approach and do the same
as for other EXEC tests: use a copy of do_nothing(). The copy
cannot be done during the test because RODATA area is write
protected. Do the copy during init, before RODATA becomes
write protected.
