I would suggest it may be better spelling this out a bit more, because
at the moment it's a little confusing when the config option is "Warn on
W+X mappings at boot", but your change makes it sound like it only
happens when you do the echo. Perhaps something like:

	  There is no runtime or memory usage effect of this option
	  once the kernel has booted up - it's a one time check at
	  boot, and can also be triggered at runtime by echo "1" to
	  "check_wx_pages".

This is a confusing! Why have you made it dependent on
CONFIG_PTDUMP_DEBUGFS?

Well actually I can see why - it's because you've put the new functions
in ptdump_debugfs.c which is (currently) only built when
CONFIG_PTDUMP_DBEUGFS is enabled.

So you need to either:

 a) Ensure the new code is built when CONFIG_PTDUMP_DEBUGFS isn't enabled.

 b) Update the Kconfig help text to say that the debugfs file for
triggering a runtime W+X check is only available if
CONFIG_PTDUMP_DEBUGFS is also enabled.

Other than the confusion over config symbols this looks good.

Thanks,

Steve
