Subject: [PATCH] x86/mm/pti: Move user W+X check into pti_finalize()

From: Joerg Roedel <jroedel@...e.de>

The user page-table gets the updated kernel mappings in
pti_finalize(), which runs after the RO+X permissions got
applied to the kernel page-table in mark_readonly().

But with CONFIG_DEBUG_WX enabled, the user page-table is
already checked in mark_readonly() for insecure mappings.
This causes false-positive warnings, because the user
page-table did not get the updated mappings yet.

Move the W+X check for the user page-table into
pti_finalize() after it updated all required mappings.

Signed-off-by: Joerg Roedel <jroedel@...e.de>
