Subject[PATCH v3 3/5] x86/mm: add help function to check specific protection flags in range
Date
Introduce the needs_static_protections() helper to check specific
protection flags in range. It calls static_protection() to check
whether any part of the address/len range is forced to change from 'prot'.
