[PATCH 3/3 v3] kdump, proc/vmcore: Enable dumping encrypted memory when SEV was active

In the kdump kernel, the memory of the first kernel needs to be dumped
into the vmcore file.

It is similar to the SME kdump, if SEV was enabled in the first kernel,
the old memory has to be remapped with memory encryption mask in order
to access it properly. Following commit 992b649a3f01 ("kdump, proc/vmcore:
Enable kdumping encrypted memory with SME enabled") took care of the
SME case but it uses sme_active() which checks for SME only. Lets use
the mem_encrypt_active() which returns true when either of them are
active.

Unlike the SME, the second kernel images(kernel and initrd) are loaded
to the encrypted memory when SEV is active, hence the kernel elf header
must be remapped as encrypted in order to access it properly.
