Subject[PATCH] hardening: add PROT_FINAL prot flag to mmap/mprotect
This patch adds support for the PROT_FINAL flag to
the mmap() and mprotect() syscalls.

The PROT_FINAL flag indicates that the requested set
of protection bits should be final, i.e., it shall
not be allowed for a subsequent mprotect call to
set protection bits that were not set already.

This is mainly intended for the dynamic linker,
which sets up the address space on behalf of
dynamic binaries. By using this flag, it can
prevent exploited code from remapping read-only
executable code or data sections read-write.
