[PATCH 0/4 V3] Support kdump for AMD secure memory encryption(SME)

It is convenient to remap the old memory encrypted to the second kernel by
calling ioremap_encrypted().

When sme enabled on AMD server, we also need to support kdump. Because
the memory is encrypted in the first kernel, we will remap the old memory
encrypted to the second kernel(crash kernel), and sme is also enabled in
the second kernel, otherwise the old memory encrypted can not be decrypted.
Because simply changing the value of a C-bit on a page will not
automatically encrypt the existing contents of a page, and any data in the
page prior to the C-bit modification will become unintelligible. A page of
memory that is marked encrypted will be automatically decrypted when read
from DRAM and will be automatically encrypted when written to DRAM.

For the kdump, it is necessary to distinguish whether the memory is
encrypted. Furthermore, we should also know which part of the memory is
encrypted or decrypted. We will appropriately remap the memory according
to the specific situation in order to tell cpu how to deal with the
data(encrypted or decrypted). For example, when sme enabled, if the old
memory is encrypted, we will remap the old memory in encrypted way, which
will automatically decrypt the old memory encrypted when we read those data
from the remapping address.

This patch is only for SME kdump, it is not support SEV kdump.

Some changes:
1. remove the sme_active() check in __ioremap_caller().
2. remove the '#ifdef' stuff throughout this patch.
3. put some logic into the early_memremap_pgprot_adjust() and clean the
previous unnecessary changes, for example: arch/x86/include/asm/dmi.h,
arch/x86/kernel/acpi/boot.c, drivers/acpi/tables.c.
4. add a new file and modify Makefile.
5. clean compile warning in copy_device_table() and some compile error.
6. split the original patch into four patches, it will be better for
review.

Some known issues:
1. about SME
Upstream kernel doesn't work when we use kexec in the follow command. The
system will hang.
(This issue doesn't matter with the kdump patch.)

Reproduce steps:
 # kexec -l /boot/vmlinuz-4.17.0-rc7+ --initrd=/boot/initramfs-4.17.0-rc7+.img --command-line="root=/dev/mapper/rhel_hp--dl385g10--03-root ro mem_encrypt=on rd.lvm.lv=rhel_hp-dl385g10-03/root rd.lvm.lv=rhel_hp-dl385g10-03/swap console=ttyS0,115200n81 LANG=en_US.UTF-8 earlyprintk=serial debug nokaslr"
 # kexec -e (or reboot)

The system will hang:

2. about SEV
Upstream kernel(Host OS) doesn't work in host side, some drivers about
SEV always go wrong in host side. We can't boot SEV Guest OS to test
kdump patch. Maybe it is more reasonable to improve SEV in another
patch. When some drivers can work in host side and it can also boot
Virtual Machine(SEV Guest OS), it will be suitable to fix SEV for kdump.
