A user of that interface doesn't care, right?

All she wants to do is pass in an address and size and the code will
figure out everything. And I think address and size is the simplest two
args you can pass. numpages can be calculated from it. As you do in
sme_set_mem_*.

And you need to do it all in pageattr.c because it uses the cpa wankery
in there so you probably want to define

int set_memory_dec(unsigned long addr, size_t size)
int set_memory_enc(unsigned long addr, size_t size)

there which both simply call

__set_memory_enc_dec(unsigned long addr, size_t size, bool enc)

and it goes and figures out everything, builds the cpa_data and does the
mapping.

That looks very simple and clean to me.
