This is the second place which does

if (!SME && !SEV)

I wonder if, instead of sprinking those, we should have a

if (mem_enc_active())

or so which unifies all those memory encryption logic tests and makes
the code more straightforward for readers who don't have to pay
attention to SME vs SEV ...

Just a thought.
