Subject[PATCH 5.0 158/238] powerpc/powernv: Make opal log only readable by root
Date
5.0-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Jordan Niethe <jniethe5@gmail.com>

commit 7b62f9bd2246b7d3d086e571397c14ba52645ef1 upstream.

Currently the opal log is globally readable. It is kernel policy to
limit the visibility of physical addresses / kernel pointers to root.
Given this and the fact the opal log may contain this information it
would be better to limit the readability to root.

Fixes: bfc36894a48b ("powerpc/powernv: Add OPAL message log interface")
