Subject: [POC 23/23] module: Remove obsolete module_disable_ro()
Date: Fri, 17 Jan 2020 16:03:23 +0100
Message-ID: <20200117150323.21801-24-pmladek@suse.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200117150323.21801-1-pmladek@suse.com>

The split livepatch modules are relocated immediately during the module
load. There is no longer needed to disable the RO protection. The function
can be finally remove because livepatching was the only user (sinner).
