PM / hibernate: Image data protection during restoration
Make it possible to protect all pages holding image data during hibernate image restoration by setting them read-only (so as to catch attempts to write to those pages after image data have been stored in them). This adds overhead to image restoration code (it may cause large page mappings to be split as a result of page flags changes) and the errors it protects against should never happen in theory, so the feature is only active after passing hibernate=protect_image to the command line of the restore kernel. Also it only is built if CONFIG_DEBUG_RODATA is set. Signed-off-by: Rafael J. Wysocki <rafael.j.wysocki@intel.com>
