Subject[PATCH v3 0/5] x86: SME: BSP/SME microcode update fix
This patch series addresses an issue when SME is active and the BSP
is attempting to check for and load microcode during load_ucode_bsp().
Since the initrd has not been decrypted (yet) and the virtual address
of the initrd treats the memory as encrypted, the CPIO archive parsing
fails to locate the microcode.

This series moves the encryption of the initrd into the early boot code
and encrypts it at the same time that the kernel is encrypted. Since
the initrd is now encrypted, the CPIO archive parsing succeeds in
properly locating the microcode.

The following patches are included in this fix:
- Cleanup register saving in arch/x86/mm/mem_encrypt_boot.S
- Reduce parameters and complexity for creating the SME PGD mappings
- Centralize the use of the PMD flags used in sme_encrypt_kernel() in
preparation for using PTE flags also.
- Prepare sme_encrypt_kernel() to handle PAGE aligned encryption, not
just 2MB large page aligned encryption.
- Encrypt the initrd in sme_encrypt_kernel() when the kernel is being

This patch series is based on tip/master.


Changes from v2:
- General code cleanup based on feedback.

Changes from v1:
- Additional patch to cleanup the register saving performed in
arch/x86/mm/mem_encrypt_boot.S in prep for changes made in the
remainder of the patchset.
- Additional patch to reduce parameters and complexity for creating the
SME PGD mappings by introducing and using a structure for referencing
the PGD to populate, the pagetable allocation area, the virtual/physical
addresses being mapped and the pagetable flags to be used.
- Consolidate PMD/PTE mapping code to reduce duplication.
