NAME

     vm_page_protect — lower a page's protection

SYNOPSIS

     #include <sys/param.h>
     #include <vm/vm.h>
     #include <vm/vm_page.h>

     void
     vm_page_protect(vm_page_t mem, int prot);

DESCRIPTION

     The vm_page_protect() function lowers a page's protection.  The protection is never raised
     by this function; therefore, if the page is already at VM_PROT_NONE, the function does
     nothing.

     Its arguments are:

     mem   The page whose protection is lowered.

     prot  The protection the page should be reduced to.  If VM_PROT_NONE is specified, then the
           PG_WRITABLE and PG_MAPPED flags are cleared and the pmap_page's protection is set to
           VM_PROT_NONE.  If VM_PROT_READ is specified, then the PG_WRITABLE flag is cleared and
           the pmap_page's protection is set to VM_PROT_READ.

     Higher protection requests are ignored.
