SubjectRe: [PATCH bpf-next] bpf: Make trampolines W^X
I'm guessing 2 pages are used to allow for different protections? Does
only the first page's protections need to be changed? Is that
"old_image"?

+ set_memory_nx((unsigned long)image, 1);
+ set_memory_rw((unsigned long)image, 1);

+ set_memory_ro((unsigned long)new_image, 1);
+ set_memory_x((unsigned long)new_image, 1);

Because

+ void *old_image = tr->image + ((tr->selector + 1) & 1) * PAGE_SIZE;
+ void *new_image = tr->image + (tr->selector & 1) * PAGE_SIZE

If there were checks between these steps to verify the trampoline
wasn't tampered with while the page was writable it would make sense
to do so before enabling execution.

Could some of these int's be unsigned to be extra cautious?

One last thought, if the extra checks are implemented, maybe comparing
against the old image prior to setting rw would be worthwhile?
