arm64: vdso: Mark vDSO code as read-onlyv4.1/topic/ro-vDSO
commit 88d8a7994e564d209d4b2583496631c2357d386b upstream. Although the arm64 vDSO is cleanly separated by code/data with the code being read-only in userspace mappings, the code page is still writable from the kernel. There have been exploits (such as http://itszn.com/blog/?p=21) that take advantage of this on x86 to go from a bad kernel write to full root. Prevent this specific exploit on arm64 by putting the vDSO code page in read-only memory as well.
