Subject[PATCH v4 1/2] module: verify address is read-only
Date
Implement a mechanism to check if a module's address is in
the rodata or ro_after_init sections. It mimics the existing functions
that test if an address is inside a module's text section.

Functions that take a module as an argument will be able to verify that the
module address is in a read-only section. The idea is to prevent structures
(including modules) that are not read-only from being passed to functions.

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()

Suggested-by: Kees Cook <keescook@chromium.org>

Changes in v4:
- Rename function __module_ro_address() to __module_rodata_address()
- Move module_rodata_address() stub below is_module_address()
- Minor comment fixes
- Verify that mod is not NULL before setting up layout variables
Changes in v3:
- Change function name is_module_ro_address() to
is_module_rodata_address().
- Improve comments on is_module_rodata_address().
- Add a !CONFIG_MODULES stub for is_module_rodata_address.
- Correct and simplify the check for the read-only memory regions in
the module address.
