Got it, will update the commit message.

At this point generic protection_map[] array is still being used via
this declaration on many (!ARCH_HAS_VM_GET_PAGE_PROT) platforms such
as mips, m68k, arm etc.

This is being used in some platforms as mentioned before.

Then should be able to be a 'const' wrt mips, m68k, arm platforms.
But should this even be changed, if this is going to be dropped off
eventually ?
