Subject[PATCH v4 0/2] provide check for ro_after_init memory sections
Date
Provide a mechanism for other functions to verify that their arguments
are read-only.

This implements the first half of a suggestion made by Kees Cook for
the Kernel Self Protection Project:

- provide mechanism to check for ro_after_init memory areas, and
reject structures not marked ro_after_init in vmbus_register()

http://www.openwall.com/lists/kernel-hardening/2017/02/04/1

The idea is to prevent structures (including modules) that are not
read-only from being passed to functions. It builds upon the functions
in kernel/extable.c that test if an address is in the text section.

I have dropped the third patch that uses these features to check the
arguments to vmbus_register() because the maintainers have not been
receptive to using it. My goal right now is to get the API right.

I have test compiled this series on next-20170324 for x86.
