Subject: [PATCH V31 13/25] ACPI: Limit access to custom_method when the kernel
 is locked down

From: Matthew Garrett <mjg59@...f.ucam.org>

custom_method effectively allows arbitrary access to system memory, making
it possible for an attacker to circumvent restrictions on module loading.
Disable it if the kernel is locked down.
