Looks good, thanks.

Hrrm, maybe optimize_nops() should work on a buffer and do
text_poke_early() too at the end, so that it doesn't differ from all the
other paths changing kernel text. So as to stuff like that doesn't get
missed next time I'm touching it.

But with your way we don't need the additional buffer. I guess your
solution is better resource-wise.
