vm_map_protect — apply protection bits to a virtual memory region
#include <sys/param.h> #include <vm/vm.h> #include <vm/vm_map.h> int vm_map_protect(vm_map_t map, vm_offset_t start, vm_offset_t end, vm_prot_t new_prot, boolean_t set_max);
The vm_map_protect() function sets the protection bits of the address region bounded by start and end within the map map to new_prot. If set_max is TRUE, new_prot is treated as the new max_protection setting for each underlying entry. Otherwise, only the protection field is affected. The range MUST be contiguous, and MUST NOT contain sub-maps.
The function acquires a lock on the map for the duration, by calling vm_map_lock(9).
The vm_map_protect() function returns KERN_SUCCESS if the protection bits could be set successfully. If a sub-map entry was encountered in the range, KERN_INVALID_ARGUMENT is returned. If the value of new_prot would exceed max_protection for an entry within the range, KERN_PROTECTION_FAILURE is returned.
