With CONFIG_STRICT_KERNEL_RWX=y and CONFIG_KPROBES=y, there will be one
W+X page at boot by default.  This can be tested with
CONFIG_PPC_PTDUMP=y and CONFIG_PPC_DEBUG_WX=y set, and checking the
kernel log during boot.

powerpc doesn't implement its own alloc() for kprobes like other
architectures do, but we couldn't immediately mark RO anyway since we do
a memcpy to the page we allocate later.  After that, nothing should be
allowed to modify the page, and write permissions are removed well
before the kprobe is armed.

The memcpy() would fail if >1 probes were allocated, so use
patch_instruction() instead which is safe for RO.

patch_instruction() already does the flush, no need to flush again with 
flush_icache_range()

I don't really understand, why do you need to set this ro ? Or why do 
you need to change the memcpy() to patch_instruction() if the area is 
not already ro ?

If I understand correctly, p->ainsn.insn is within a special executable 
page allocated via module_alloc(). Wouldn't it be more correct to modify 
kprobe get_insn_slot() logic so that allocated page is ROX instead of RWX ?
