Subject[PATCH, RFC 42/62] mm: Generalize the mprotect implementation to support extensions
Date
From: Alison Schofield <alison.schofield@intel.com>

Today mprotect is implemented to support legacy mprotect behavior
plus an extension for memory protection keys. Make it more generic
so that it can support additional extensions in the future.

This is done is preparation for adding a new system call for memory
encyption keys. The intent is that the new encrypted mprotect will be
another extension to legacy mprotect.
