We usually have CONFIG_RELOCATABLE on - on most configs. Our STRICT
RWX depends on !RELOCATABLE as you've seen. I have patches to fix
STRICT_KERNEL_RWX on CONFIG_RELOCATABLE

https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/795744/ (I need to rebase this to
use generic helpers we have to convert an mm,addr to pte)
Aside, I also have set_memory_xx at
https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/796183/ (again I need to rebase
them)

I hope to get to them next week, hopefully

Balbir Singh.
