Subject: [PATCH 3/3] arm: mm: dump: add checking for
 writable and executable pages

Page mappings with full RWX permissions are a security risk.
x86, arm64 has an option to walk the page tables
and dump any bad pages.

(1404d6f13e47
("arm64: dump: Add checking for writable and exectuable pages"))
Add a similar implementation for arm.

+	---help---
+		Generate a warning if any W+X mappings are found at boot.
+
+		This is useful for discovering cases where the kernel is leaving
+		W+X mappings after applying NX, as such mappings are a security risk.
+
+		Look for a message in dmesg output like this:
+
+			arm/mm: Checked W+X mappings: passed, no W+X pages found.
+
+		or like this, if the check failed:
+
+			arm/mm: Checked W+X mappings: FAILED, <N> W+X pages found.
+
+		Note that even if the check fails, your kernel is possibly
+		still fine, as W+X mappings are not a security hole in
+		themselves, what they do is that they make the exploitation
+		of other unfixed kernel bugs easier.
+
+		There is no runtime or memory usage effect of this option
+		once the kernel has booted up - it's a one time check.
+
+		If in doubt, say "Y".

 # RMK wants arm kernels compiled with frame pointers or stack unwinding.
