Sorry for my late reply.
Here, it doesn't need to dump MMIO space of the previous kernel, when the
kdump kernel boot, the MMIO address will be remapped in decryption manners,
but the MMIO address don't belong to the range of the crash reserved memory,
for the kdump kernel, the MMIO space(address) and IOMMU device table(address)
are outside address, whereas, the IOMMU device table is encrypted in the first
kernel, the kdump kernel will need to copy the content of IOMMU device table
from the first kernel when the kdump kernel boot, so the IOMMU device table will
be remapped in encryption manners.
So some of them require to be remapped in encryption manners, and some(address)
require to be remapped in decryption manners.
