[Cryptography] How to make rowhammer less likely

AES CTR is used for encryption. Now, 8-bit bytes are used so that does
limit what one can do, but if in addition a unique 8-bit involution was
used to encrypt the data in each memory page, in order to successfully
rowhammer bits, it would require obtaining the full codebook for the target

I realize this solution is so simple it may have simply not occurred to
anyone of you. But now I've proposed it, so maybe the cybersecurity
everyone needs gets closer to being realized.
