On general this is unhealthy - as the payload's .bss (definitly)
or .data (maybe) will be modified once the payload is running.

Doing an revert and then re-applying the payload with a non-pristine
.bss or .data can lead to unforseen consequences (.bss are assumed
to always contain zero value but now they may have a different value).

There is one exception - if the payload contains only one .data section
- the .livepatch.funcs, then it is OK to re-apply an revert.

This looks reasonable, with Jan's comments addressed.
