[PATCHv3 02/17] mm/khugepaged: Do not collapse pages in encrypted VMAs

Pages for encrypted VMAs have to be allocated in a special way:
we would need to propagate down not only desired NUMA node but also
whether the page is encrypted.

It complicates not-so-trivial routine of huge page allocation in
khugepaged even more. It also puts more pressure on page allocator:
we cannot re-use pages allocated for encrypted VMA to collapse
page in unencrypted one or vice versa.

I think for now it worth skipping encrypted VMAs. We can return
to this topic later.
