[PATCH v7 21/36] x86/mm: Add support to access persistent memory in the clear




Persistent memory is expected to persist across reboots. The encryption
key used by SME will change across reboots which will result in corrupted
persistent memory.  Persistent memory is handed out by block devices
through memory remapping functions, so be sure not to map this memory as
encrypted.
