I wonder what theoretical issue you refer to here. I didn't say
anything like that on this thread afaics, nor in the description
of the patch that you want to partly undo. EFI implementations
write-protecting r/o sections is not just a theoretical issue afaict.

Well, as much as I dislike such #ifdef-ary, I think I could (rather
hesitantly) accept that.
