Subject[PATCH 4.9 065/138] libnvdimm, pfn: make resource attribute only readable by root
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Dan Williams <dan.j.williams@intel.com>

commit 26417ae4fc6108f8db436f24108b08f68bdc520e upstream.

For the same reason that /proc/iomem returns 0's for non-root readers
and acpi tables are root-only, make the 'resource' attribute for pfn
devices only readable by root. Otherwise we disclose physical address
information.

Fixes: f6ed58c70d14 ("libnvdimm, pfn: 'resource'-address and 'size'...")
