Subject[PATCH v4 0/4] x86: Fix SEV guest regression
The following commit

x86/kvmclock: Remove memblock dependency

introduced SEV guest regression.

The guest physical address holding the wall_clock and hv_clock_boot
are shared with the hypervisor must be mapped with C=0 when SEV
is active. To clear the C-bit we use kernel_physical_mapping_init() to
split the large pages. The above commit moved the kvmclock initialization
very early and kernel_physical_mapping_init() fails to allocate memory
while spliting the large page.

To solve it, we add a special .data..decrypted section, this section can be
used to hold the shared variables. Early boot code maps this section with
C=0. The section is pmd aligned and sized to avoid the need to split the pages.
Caller can use __decrypted attribute to add the variables in .data..decrypted

Changes since v2:
- commit message and code comment improvements (based on Boris feedback)
- move sme_populate_pgd fixes in new patch.
- drop stable Cc - will submit to stable after patch is upstreamed.

Changes since v1:
- move the logic to re-arrange mapping in new patch
- move the definition of __start_data_* in mem_encrypt.h
- map the workarea buffer as encrypted when SEV is enabled
- enhance the sme_populate_pgd to update the pte/pmd flags when mapping exist

Brijesh Singh (4):
x86/mm: Restructure sme_encrypt_kernel()
x86/mm: fix sme_populate_pgd() to update page flags
x86/mm: add .data..decrypted section to hold shared variables
x86/kvm: use __decrypted attribute in shared variables
