[PATCH] riscv: Grab text_mutex before patching jump-labels

Emil Renner Berthing kernel at esmil.dk
Thu Jul 23 12:36:28 EDT 2020

Like other arch's we use patch_text_nosync or equivalent
to patch the jump-labels, but also like other arch's we
need to hold the text_mutex before calling that.

Signed-off-by: Emil Renner Berthing <kernel at esmil.dk>

Fixes: b6e0878a4ec8 ("riscv: Add jump-label implementation")
..that is already in riscv/for-next.

Palmer: Sorry, I didn't notice this before. Feel free to
squash this into the commit above if you like.
