Subject: [PATCH] ARM: module: Avoid W and X mappings at the beginning

From: He Zhe <zhe.he@...driver.com>

It is more secure to map module memory as not-execute at the beginning.
Memory sections that need to be executable will be turned to executable
later in complete_formation.

This is a corresponding change for ARM to the following commit
commit f2c65fb3221a ("x86/modules: Avoid breaking W^X while loading modules")

Tested with test_bpf:
test_bpf: Summary: 378 PASSED, 0 FAILED, [0/366 JIT'ed]

Signed-off-by: He Zhe <zhe.he@...driver.com>
