Subject: [PATCH 24/27] bpf: Restrict kernel image access functions when the
 kernel is locked down

From: David Howells <dhowells@...hat.com>

There are some bpf functions can be used to read kernel memory:
bpf_probe_read, bpf_probe_write_user and bpf_trace_printk.  These allow
private keys in kernel memory (e.g. the hibernation image signing key) to
be read by an eBPF program and kernel memory to be altered without
restriction.

Completely prohibit the use of BPF when the kernel is locked down.
