Subject[PATCH 05/13] efi/x86: don't map the entire kernel text RW for mixed mode
Date
The mixed mode thunking routine requires a part of it to be
mapped 1:1, and for this reason, we currently map the entire
kernel .text read/write in the EFI page tables, which is bad.

In fact, the kernel_map_pages_in_pgd() invocation that installs
this mapping is entirely redundant, since all of DRAM is already
1:1 mapped read/write in the EFI page tables when we reach this
point, which means that .rodata is mapped read-write as well.

So let's remap both .text and .rodata read-only in the EFI
page tables.
