Subject[PATCH 2/3] e1000e: Useset_memory_ro()/set_memory_rw() to protect flash memory
Date
From: Bruce Allan <bruce.w.allan@intel.com>

A number of users have reported NVM corruption on various ICHx platform
LOMs. One possible reasons for this could be unexpected and/or malicious
writes to the flash memory area mapped into kernel memory. Once the
interface is up, there should be very few reads/writes of the mapped flash
memory. This patch makes use of the x86 set_memory_*() functions to set
the mapped memory read-only and temporarily set it writable only when the
driver needs to write to it. With the memory set read-only, any unexpected
write will be logged with a stack dump indicating the offending code.

Since these LOMs are only on x86 ICHx platforms, it does not matter that
this API is not yet available on other architectures, however it is
dependent on a previous patch that exports these function name symbols.
