CONFIG_RODATA_FULL_DEFAULT_ENABLED: Apply r/o permissions of VM areas also to their linear aliases

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_RODATA_FULL_DEFAULT_ENABLED:

Help text

Apply read-only attributes of VM areas to the linear alias of the backing pages as well. This prevents code or read-only data from being modified (inadvertently or intentionally) via another mapping of the same memory page. This additional enhancement can be turned off at runtime by passing rodata=[off|on] (and turned on with rodata=full if this option is set to 'n')

This requires the linear region to be mapped down to pages, which may adversely affect performance in some cases.
