Subject[PATCH, RFC 03/62] mm/ksm: Do not merge pages with different KeyIDs
Date
KeyID indicates what key to use to encrypt and decrypt page's content.
Depending on the implementation a cipher text may be tied to physical
address of the page. It means that pages with an identical plain text
would appear different if KSM would look at a cipher text. It effectively
disables KSM for encrypted pages.

In addition, some implementations may not allow to read cipher text at all.

KSM compares plain text instead (transparently to KSM code).

But we still need to make sure that pages with identical plain text will
not be merged together if they are encrypted with different keys.

To make it work kernel only allows merging pages with the same KeyID.
The approach guarantees that the merged page can be read by all users.
