AFAICT it does not do that.

So setting dirty_accountable bring us to that code in mprotect.c:

if (dirty_accountable && pte_dirty(ptent) &&
(pte_soft_dirty(ptent) ||
!(vma->vm_flags & VM_SOFTDIRTY))) {
ptent = pte_mkwrite(ptent);
}

My understanding is that you want to set write flag when enable_wp
is false and you want to set the write flag unconditionaly, right ?

If so then you should really move the change_protection() flags
patch before this patch and add a flag for setting pte write flags.

Otherwise the above is broken at it will only set the write flag
for pte that were dirty and i am guessing so far you always were
lucky because pte were all dirty (change_protection will preserve
dirtyness) when you write protected them.

So i believe the above is broken or at very least unclear if what
you really want is to only set write flag to pte that have the
dirty flag set.


Cheers,
Jérôme
