In the openSUSE 13.1 kernel, all x86_64 kernel flavors had
CONFIG_STRICT_DEVMEM disabled, except ec2 which had this option enabled.
In the openSUSE 13.2 kernel (as well as the master and openSUSE-42.1
branches), all kernel flavors have CONFIG_STRICT_DEVMEM enabled, except
x86_64/ec2 which has this option disabled (commit 0e71aa40.) In between,
it had been disabled a first time (commit 8673f3f8) then re-enabled
I'm fine with it being enabled where not in sync with other flavors
(but please also take into consideration bug 843732), as your
patch suggests you intend to do.
I've read the bug and I am not surprised, in fact I expected to find
that kind of explanation in the git log and was surprised not to.
However, given that CONFIG_STRICT_DEVMEM was consistently  enabled in
SLE12 ans SLE12 SP1 meanwhile, I would guess (and hope) that software
vendors have fixed their products by now.
 Except for s390x/zfcpdump which does not have it; no idea if it's on
purpose or an overlook.
I wouldn't necessarily welcome it getting
disabled in 13.1 though.
I have no intention of touching 13.1 at this point. I plan to update
master and 42.1, and maybe 13.2.
