Subject: devmem, x86: fix rename of CONFIG_NONPROMISC_DEVMEM


From: Arjan van de Ven <arjan@infradead.org>
Date: Sat, 19 Jul 2008 15:47:17 -0700

CONFIG_NONPROMISC_DEVMEM was a rather confusing name - but renaming it
to CONFIG_PROMISC_DEVMEM causes problems on architectures that do not
support this feature; this patch renames it to CONFIG_STRICT_DEVMEM,
so that architectures can opt-in into it.

( the polarity of the option is still the same as it was originally; it
  needs to be for now to not break architectures that don't have the
  infastructure yet to support this feature)

If this option is left on, you allow userspace (root) access to all
of memory, including kernel and userspace memory. Accidental
access to this is obviously disastrous, but specific access can
be used by people debugging the kernel.
be used by people debugging the kernel. Note that with PAT support
enabled, even in this case there are restrictions on /dev/mem
use due to the cache aliasing requirements.
If this option is switched on, the /dev/mem file only allows
userspace access to PCI space and the BIOS code and data regions.
