commit 39290b389ea upstream.

The current "rodata=off" parameter disables read-only kernel mappings
under CONFIG_DEBUG_RODATA:
    commit d2aa1acad22f ("mm/init: Add 'rodata=off' boot cmdline parameter
    to disable read-only kernel mappings")

This patch is a logical extension to module mappings ie. read-only mappings
at module loading can be disabled even if CONFIG_DEBUG_SET_MODULE_RONX
(mainly for debug use). Please note, however, that it only affects RO/RW
permissions, keeping NX set.

This is the first step to make CONFIG_DEBUG_SET_MODULE_RONX mandatory
(always-on) in the future as CONFIG_DEBUG_RODATA on x86 and arm64.
