Subject: [PATCH 3.18 126/134] powerpc/powernv: Make opal log only readable by root

3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Jordan Niethe <jniethe5@...il.com>

commit 7b62f9bd2246b7d3d086e571397c14ba52645ef1 upstream.

Currently the opal log is globally readable. It is kernel policy to
limit the visibility of physical addresses / kernel pointers to root.
Given this and the fact the opal log may contain this information it
would be better to limit the readability to root.
