 * Clear and restore the kernel write-protection flag on the local CPU.
 * Allows the kernel to edit read-only pages.
 * Side-effect: any interrupt handler running between save and restore will have
 * the ability to write to read-only pages.
 *
 * Warning:
 * Code patching in the UP case is safe if NMIs and MCE handlers are stopped and
 * no thread can be preempted in the instructions being modified (no iret to an
 * invalid instruction possible) or if the instructions are changed from a
 * consistent state to another consistent state atomically.
 * On the local CPU you need to be protected again NMI or MCE handlers seeing an
 * inconsistent instruction while you patch.
