For the AMD SEV machines, add kdump support when the SEV is enabled.

Test tools:
makedumpfile[v1.6.5]:
git://git.code.sf.net/p/makedumpfile/code
commit <d222b01e516b> ("Add support for AMD Secure Memory Encryption")
Note: This patch was merged into the devel branch.

kexec-tools-2.0.19:
git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/utils/kernel/kexec/kexec-tools.git
commit <942d813cda35> ("Fix for the kmem '-i' option on Linux 5.0")
http://lists.infradead.org/pipermail/kexec/2019-March/022576.html
Note: The second kernel cann't boot without this patch. 

kernel:
git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git
commit <f261c4e529da> ("Merge branch 'akpm' (patches from Andrew)")

Test steps:
[1] load the vmlinux and initrd for kdump
# kexec -p /boot/vmlinuz-5.0.0+ --initrd=/boot/initramfs-5.0.0+kdump.img --command-line="BOOT_IMAGE=(hd0,gpt2)/vmlinuz-5.0.0+ ro resume=UUID=126c5e95-fc8b-48d6-a23b-28409198a52e console=ttyS0,115200 earlyprintk=serial irqpoll nr_cpus=1 reset_devices cgroup_disable=memory mce=off numa=off udev.children-max=2 panic=10 rootflags=nofail acpi_no_memhotplug transparent_hugepage=never disable_cpu_apicid=0"

[2] trigger panic
# echo 1 > /proc/sys/kernel/sysrq
# echo c > /proc/sysrq-trigger

[3] check and parse the vmcore
# crash vmlinux /var/crash/127.0.0.1-2019-03-15-05\:03\:42/vmcore

  kexec: Do not map the kexec area as decrypted when SEV is active
  kexec: Set the C-bit in the identity map page table when SEV is active
  kdump,proc/vmcore: Enable kdumping encrypted memory when SEV was
    active
