arm64: kernel: Add support for Privileged Access Neverv3.18/topic/PAN
commit 338d4f49d6f7114a017d294ccf7374df4f998edc upstream. 'Privileged Access Never' is a new arm8.1 feature which prevents privileged code from accessing any virtual address where read or write access is also permitted at EL0. This patch enables the PAN feature on all CPUs, and modifies {get,put}_user helpers temporarily to permit access. This will catch kernel bugs where user memory is accessed directly. 'Unprivileged loads and stores' using ldtrb et al are unaffected by PAN. Reviewed-by: Catalin Marinas <catalin.marinas@arm.com> Signed-off-by: James Morse <james.morse@arm.com> [will: use ALTERNATIVE in asm and tidy up pan_enable check] Signed-off-by: Will Deacon <will.deacon@arm.com> Signed-off-by: David Brown <david.brown@linaro.org>
