[RFC v2 00/12] powerpc: Memory Protection Keys




Memory protection keys enable applications to protect its
address space from inadvertent access or corruption from
itself.

The overall idea:

 A process allocates a   key  and associates it with
 a  address  range  within    its   address   space.
 The process  than  can  dynamically  set read/write 
 permissions on  the   key   without  involving  the 
 kernel. Any  code that  violates   the  permissions
 off the address space; as defined by its associated
 key, will receive a segmentation fault.

This patch series enables the feature on PPC64.
It is enabled on HPTE 64K-page platform.

ISA3.0 section 5.7.13 describes the detailed specifications.


Testing:
	This patch series has passed all the protection key
	tests available in  the selftests directory.
	The tests are updated to work on both x86 and powerpc.


version v2:
	(1) documentation and selftest added
 	(2) fixed a bug in 4k hpte backed 64k pte where page
	    invalidation was not done correctly, and 
	    initialization of second-part-of-the-pte was not
	    done correctly if the pte was not yet Hashed
	    with a hpte.  Reported by Aneesh.
	(3) Fixed ABI breakage caused in siginfo structure.
		Reported by Anshuman.
	
	Outstanding known issue:
	  Calls to sys_swapcontext with a made-up context will end 
	  up with a crap AMR if done by code who didn't know about
	  that register. -- Reported by Ben.

version v1: Initial version

Thanks-to: Dave Hansen, Aneesh, Paul Mackerras,
	   Michael Ellermen
