Subject[PATCH 0/6] mm, x86, powerpc: Memory Protection Keys enhancement
The patch-series enhances memory protection keys feature.

The patch(1) introduces an additional vma bit to support 32
pkeys. PowerPC supports 32 pkeys.

The patch(2,3) introduces a new interface arch_pkeys_enabled(),
this interface can be used by arch-neutral code to display
protection key value in smap.

The patch(4) introduces a syfs interface, to display the static
attributes of the protection key. Eg: max number of keys.

The last two patches, (5,6) update documentation.

A separate patch series that enhances selftest will follow. The
entire patch series that enables pkeys on powerpc is at memkey.v9-rc1

This patches are tested on powerpc platform using a
enhaced set of selftests.
Could not test on x86 since I do not have access to
one with pkey support.

version v3:
(1) sysfs interface - thanks Thiago.
(2) Documentation update.

version v2:
(1) Documentation is updated to better
capture the semantics.
(2) introduced arch_pkeys_enabled() to find
if an arch enables pkeys. Correspond-
ing change in logic that displays key
value in smaps.
(3) code rearranged in many places based on
comments from Dave Hansen, Balbir,
version v1: Initial version
