I recently noticed this change via the linux-next tree.

It may not be possible to edit at this late date, but the change
description refers to PROT_KERNEL, which is a symbol which does not
appear to exist; perhaps PAGE_KERNEL was meant? The mismatch caused me
and a couple other folks some confusion briefly until we decided it
was supposed to be PAGE_KERNEL; if it's not too late, editing the
description to clarify so would be nice.

Many thanks.
