Subject[PATCH v2 2/3] powerpc/mm: Fix kernel RAM protection after freeing unused memory on PPC32
Date
As seen below, allthough the init sections have been freed, the
associated memory area is still marked as executable in the
page tables.

~ dmesg
[ 5.860093] Freeing unused kernel memory: 592K (c0570000 - c0604000)

~ cat /sys/kernel/debug/kernel_page_tables
---[ Start of kernel VM ]---
0xc0000000-0xc0497fff 4704K rw X present dirty accessed shared
0xc0498000-0xc056ffff 864K rw present dirty accessed shared
0xc0570000-0xc059ffff 192K rw X present dirty accessed shared
0xc05a0000-0xc7ffffff 125312K rw present dirty accessed shared
---[ vmalloc() Area ]---

This patch fixes that.

The implementation is done by reusing the change_page_attr()
function implemented for CONFIG_DEBUG_PAGEALLOC
