Subject[PATCH v26 07/30] x86/mm: Remove _PAGE_DIRTY from kernel RO pages
Date
The x86 family of processors do not directly create read-only and Dirty
PTEs. These PTEs are created by software. One such case is that kernel
read-only pages are historically setup as Dirty.

New processors that support Shadow Stack regard read-only and Dirty PTEs as
shadow stack pages. This results in ambiguity between shadow stack and
kernel read-only pages. To resolve this, removed Dirty from kernel read-
only pages.
