In your previous submission there was a patch called

Subject: [PATCH v2 01/20] Fix "x86/alternatives: Lockdep-enforce text_mutex in text_poke*()"

What happened to it?

It did introduce a function text_poke_kgdb(), a.o., and I see this
function in the diff contexts in some of the patches in this submission
so it looks to me like you missed that first patch when submitting v3?

Or am *I* missing something?
