Subject[PATCH V38 20/29] x86/mmiotrace: Lock down the testmmiotrace module
From
From: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com>

The testmmiotrace module shouldn't be permitted when the kernel is locked
down as it can be used to arbitrarily read and write MMIO space. This is
a runtime check rather than buildtime in order to allow configurations
where the same kernel may be run in both locked down or permissive modes
depending on local policy.
