Default Bug#619838: Please enable CONFIG_DEBUG_SET_MODULE_RONX

Package: linux-2.6
Version: 2.6.38-1
Severity: wishlist


Hi,

the CONFIG_DEBUG_RODATA option is enabled in Debian kernels:

$ grep RODATA /boot/config-2.6.38-1-686
CONFIG_DEBUG_RODATA=y

which is great. However, the CONFIG_DEBUG_SET_MODULE_RONX option is
not:

$ grep RONX /boot/config-2.6.38-1-686
# CONFIG_DEBUG_SET_MODULE_RONX is not set

According to this article:

http://lwn.net/Articles/422487/

this option would improve the security of the kernel.
