Reuse module loader code to write relocations, thereby eliminating the need
for architecture specific relocation code in livepatch. Specifically, reuse
the apply_relocate_add() function in the module loader to write relocations
instead of duplicating functionality in livepatch's arch-dependent
In order to accomplish this, livepatch modules manage their own relocation
sections (marked with the SHF_RELA_LIVEPATCH section flag) and
livepatch-specific symbols (marked with SHN_LIVEPATCH symbol section
index). To apply livepatch relocation sections, livepatch symbols
referenced by relocs are resolved and then apply_relocate_add() is called
to apply those relocations.
In addition, remove x86 livepatch relocation code and the s390
klp_write_module_reloc() function stub. They are no longer needed since
relocation work has been offloaded to module loader.
Lastly, mark the module as a livepatch module so that the module loader
canappropriately identify and initialize it.
