Subject: [RFC PATCH v2 4/8] mseal: Check seal flag for mprotect(2)

From: Jeff Xu <jeffxu@...gle.com>

mprotect(2) changes protection of VMAs in the given address
range. Sealing will prevent unintended mprotect call.

What this patch does:
When a mprotect(2) is invoked, if one of its VMAs has MM_SEAL_MPROTECT
set from previous mseal(2) call, this mprotect(2) will fail, without
any VMA modified.

This patch is based on following:
1. do_mprotect_pkey() currently called in two places:
SYSCALL_DEFINE3(mprotect,...)
SYSCALL_DEFINE4(pkey_mprotect, ...)
and not in any other places, therefore omit changing the signature of
do_mprotect_pkey(), i.e. not passing checkSeals flag.

2. In do_mprotect_pkey(), calls can_modify_mm() before any
update is made on the VMAs.
