Implement memory protection APIs (RW/RX/RO) #119
May I suggest renaming the issue? Very few people know that as "JIT" (and I still don't know what that means), but as memory protection, DEP, NX, etc. Even searching for JIT on osdev doesn't return anything related to memory protection. (not bashing your work, just trying to get more people to contribute :) )
By the way, i'm getting familiar with the library and the inner workings of the horizon, looks like, a really nice microkernel. done a few tests on the switch, probably gonna try implemting memory protection later once I really get how things work. Maybe documeting a few things in the way.
Yes, but you use it for JIT, it isn't a JIT API, it is a memory protection API. You use it to make pages executable in order to make the code generated by your JIT engine executable, but it isn't a JIT in itself.
