[PATCH v3 5/5] soc: qcom: cmd-db: Map with read-only mappings

From: Stephen Boyd
Date: Tue Sep 10 2019 - 12:09:12 EST

The command DB is read-only already to the kernel because everything is
const marked once we map it. Let's go one step further and try to map
the memory as read-only in the page tables. This should make it harder
for random code to corrupt the database and change the contents.
