I would not.

Kumar, I'm aware of code in u-boot :).
Did you read this code comment ?

It clearly states that is not efficient.
It may be OK for a boot loader, because nobody cares much about it

Let me repeat my point. I _do_ know how to write self-modifying code,
I don't _like_ this approach mostly because it's not very efficient.
