The kernel permissions are fixed after the kernel page table is created:         
avoid that by mapping the kernel 'correctly' the first time.                       
     
Patch 2 is a cleanup patch on which the next patches are based on, not           
necessary for this patchset though and relies on patch 1.                                             
                                                                                 
Patch 3 introduces a new helper to set kernel mapping permissions while          
avoiding all the casts when using set_memory_* API.                              
                                                                                 
Patch 4  is the bulk of this work and deals with mapping the kernel with          
the right permissions.                                                           

Changes in v4:
* Add patch 1 as noted by Jisheng
* Changes patch 2 title as suggested by Anup
* Add Reviewed-by from Anup
                                                                                 
Changes in v3:                                                                   
* Add a patch that factorizes kernel address conversions                         
* Add a helper called set_kernel_memory in its own patch, as suggested by        
  Christoph                                                                      
* Prefer IS_ENABLED over #ifdef, as suggested by Christoph                       
* Split overly long lines, as suggested by Christoph                             
* Simplify kernel mapping by mapping ALL text as readonly and taking advantage   
  of already present code that enables write for init text before                
  free_initmem_default.                                                          
                                                                                 
Changes in v2:                                                                   
* Rebased on top of for-next (and "riscv: mm: fix build errors caused by         
  mk_pmd()")                                                                     
* Get rid of protect_kernel_linear_mapping_text_rodata as suggested by           
  Jisheng                                                                        
* Improve code in general compared to previous RFC

Alexandre Ghiti (4):
  riscv: Remove CONFIG_PHYS_RAM_BASE_FIXED
  riscv: Simplify xip and !xip kernel address conversion macros
  riscv: Introduce set_kernel_memory helper
  riscv: Map the kernel with correct permissions the first time

Thanks, these are on for-next.  I had a few conflicts, let me know if 
something went wrong.
