I assume that Linux merges the permissions when one page needs different permissions.

Hauke mentioned on IRC that CPU_MIPSR2 in the kernel's Kconfig enables
CPU_HAS_RIXI. grep the openwrt for RIXI to see what I mean.
HOWEVER, bcm47xx, ar71xx, ath79, mt7621, and a few others set
cpu_has_rixi to 0. This is significant as several CPUs in OpenWrt like
mt7620 should probably also be setting it if mt7621 is correct for
This has to be bogus. I will definitely be run testing mt7621 device
to see if anything happens.
