Subject[PATCH v3 4/7] powerpc: Set ARCH_HAS_STRICT_MODULE_RWX
Date
From: Russell Currey <ruscur@russell.cc>

To enable strict module RWX on powerpc, set:

CONFIG_STRICT_MODULE_RWX=y

You should also have CONFIG_STRICT_KERNEL_RWX=y set to have any real
security benefit.

ARCH_HAS_STRICT_MODULE_RWX is set to require ARCH_HAS_STRICT_KERNEL_RWX.
This is due to a quirk in arch/Kconfig and arch/powerpc/Kconfig that
makes STRICT_MODULE_RWX *on by default* in configurations where
STRICT_KERNEL_RWX is *unavailable*.

Since this doesn't make much sense, and module RWX without kernel RWX
doesn't make much sense, having the same dependencies as kernel RWX
works around this problem.
