[Xen-devel] [PATCH 0/2] x86: allow to enable/disable modify_ldt at run time

This is the second version. It adds a strategy for the sysctls so that we
can reject any change to a value that was already negative. This way it's
possible to disable modify_ldt temporarily or permanently (eg: lock down a
server) as suggested by Kees.

  sysctl: add a new generic strategy to make permanent changes on
    negative values
  x86/ldt: allow to disable modify_ldt at runtime
