3.11.10.10 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Petr Mladek <pmladek@suse.cz>

commit 12729f14d8357fb845d75155228b21e76360272d upstream.

If a failure occurs while modifying ftrace function, it bails out and will
remove the tracepoints to be back to what the code originally was.

There is missing the final sync run across the CPUs after the fix up is done
and before the ftrace int3 handler flag is reset.

Here's the description of the problem:

	CPU0				CPU1
	----				----
  remove_breakpoint();
  modifying_ftrace_code = 0;

				[still sees breakpoint]
				<takes trap>
				[sees modifying_ftrace_code as zero]
				[no breakpoint handler]
				[goto failed case]
				[trap exception - kernel breakpoint, no
				 handler]
				BUG()
