This patch series addresses some issues found during further testing of
Secure Memory Encryption (SME).

The following fixes are included in this update series:

- Fix a cache-related memory corruption when kexec is invoked in
  successive instances
- Remove the encryption mask from the protection properties returned
  by arch_apei_get_mem_attribute() when SME is active


This patch series is based off of the master branch of tip:
  https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip.git master

  Commit 8333bcad393c ("Merge branch 'x86/asm'")

Cc: <kexec at lists.infradead.org>

Changes since v1:
- Patch #1:
  - Only issue wbinvd if SME is active
- Patch #2:
  - Create a no encryption version of the PAGE_KERNEL protection type
    and use that in arch_apei_get_mem_attribute()
- General comment and patch description clean up
