Subject[PATCH V38 14/29] ACPI: Limit access to custom_method when the kernel is locked down
From
From: Matthew Garrett <mjg59@srcf.ucam.org>

custom_method effectively allows arbitrary access to system memory, making
it possible for an attacker to circumvent restrictions on module loading.
Disable it if the kernel is locked down.
