To show the boot time, I'm using the timestamp of the "Write protecting" line,
that's pretty much the last thing we print prior to ring 3 execution.

That's a little sad; we ought to be write-protecting kernel read-only
data as *early* as possible.

well... if you are compromised before the first ring 3 instruction...
.... you have a slightly bigger problem than where in the kernel we write protect things.
