Subject: [PATCH v5 09/23] x86/ftrace: Set trampoline pages as executable

Since alloc_module() will not set the pages as executable soon, set
ftrace trampoline pages as executable after they are allocated.

For the time being, do not change ftrace to use the text_poke()
interface. As a result, ftrace still breaks W^X.
