Subject: CVE-2021-47055: mtd: require write permissions for locking and badblock ioctls

Description
===========

In the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved:

mtd: require write permissions for locking and badblock ioctls

MEMLOCK, MEMUNLOCK and OTPLOCK modify protection bits. Thus require
write permission. Depending on the hardware MEMLOCK might even be
write-once, e.g. for SPI-NOR flashes with their WP# tied to GND. OTPLOCK
is always write-once.

MEMSETBADBLOCK modifies the bad block table.

The Linux kernel CVE team has assigned CVE-2021-47055 to this issue.

Mitigation
==========

The Linux kernel CVE team recommends that you update to the latest
stable kernel version for this, and many other bugfixes.  Individual
changes are never tested alone, but rather are part of a larger kernel
release.  Cherry-picking individual commits is not recommended or
supported by the Linux kernel community at all.  If however, updating to
the latest release is impossible, the individual changes to resolve this
issue can be found at these commits:
