mm: Allow architectures to define additional protection bits
This patch allows architectures to define functions to deal with additional protections bits for mmap() and mprotect(). arch_calc_vm_prot_bits() maps additonal protection bits to vm_flags arch_vm_get_page_prot() maps additional vm_flags to the vma's vm_page_prot arch_validate_prot() checks for valid values of the protection bits Note: vm_get_page_prot() is now pretty ugly, but the generated code should be identical for architectures that don't define additional protection bits.
