[PATCH v2 0/3] provide check for ro_after_init memory sections

From: Eddie Kovsky
Date: Sat Feb 18 2017 - 01:07:59 EST

Provide a mechansim for other functions to verify that their arguments
are read-only. Use this mechansim in the vmbus register functions to
reject arguments that fail this test.

This implements a suggestion made by Kees Cook for the Kernel Self
Protection Project:

* provide mechanism to check for ro_after_init memory areas, and
reject structures not marked ro_after_init in vmbus_register()


I have successfully compiled this series on next-20170215 for x86.

module: verify address is read-only
extable: verify address is read-only
Make vmbus register arguments read-only
