Subject[PATCH prototype] [2/8] Add support to override mmap exec write protection with O_FORCEWRITE
Date

pbitmaps need to write to files mapped as executable, so add
a way to bypass the normal write protection using a new O_FORCEWRITE
flag.

Right now the flag can be set from user space too. If have not
made up my mind if that is a good or a bad thing (I don't think
it has any real security implications). Probably it's more bad
than good.
