Subject: [PATCH 14/30] asus-wmi: Restrict debugfs interface when the kernel is locked down

From: Matthew Garrett <matthew.garrett@...ula.com>

We have no way of validating what all of the Asus WMI methods do on a given
machine - and there's a risk that some will allow hardware state to be
manipulated in such a way that arbitrary code can be executed in the
kernel, circumventing module loading restrictions.  Prevent that if the
kernel is locked down.
