Subject: [RFC PATCH v2] powerpc/xmon: restrict when kernel is locked down

Xmon should be either fully or partially disabled depending on the
kernel lockdown state.

Put xmon into read-only mode for lockdown=integrity and completely
disable xmon when lockdown=confidentiality. Xmon checks the lockdown
state and takes appropriate action:

 (1) during xmon_setup to prevent early xmon'ing

 (2) when triggered via sysrq

 (3) when toggled via debugfs

 (4) when triggered via a previously enabled breakpoint

The following lockdown state transitions are handled:

 (1) lockdown=none -> lockdown=integrity
     clear all breakpoints, set xmon read-only mode

 (2) lockdown=none -> lockdown=confidentiality
     clear all breakpoints, prevent re-entry into xmon

 (3) lockdown=integrity -> lockdown=confidentiality
     prevent re-entry into xmon

Suggested-by: Andrew Donnellan <ajd@...ux.ibm.com>

Applies on top of this series:

I've done some limited testing of the scenarios mentioned in the commit
message on a single CPU QEMU config.

v1->v2:
	Fix subject line
	Submit to linuxppc-dev and kernel-hardening
