[PATCH 0/2] Support for set_memory_* outside of module space

From: Laura Abbott
Date: Tue Nov 03 2015 - 16:48:44 EST


Based on a recent discussion[1] there is interest in having set_memory_* work
on kernel memory for security and other use cases. This patch adds the
ability for that to happen behind a kernel option. If this is welcome enough,
the Kconfig can be dropped. This has been briefly tested but not stress tested.
