Subject[PATCH v2 0/2] x86: Secure Memory Encryption (SME) fixes 2017-07-26
This patch series addresses some issues found during further testing of
Secure Memory Encryption (SME).

The following fixes are included in this update series:

- Fix a cache-related memory corruption when kexec is invoked in
successive instances
- Remove the encryption mask from the protection properties returned
by arch_apei_get_mem_attribute() when SME is active


This patch series is based off of the master branch of tip: master

Commit 8333bcad393c ("Merge branch 'x86/asm'")

Cc: <>

Changes since v1:
- Patch #1:
- Only issue wbinvd if SME is active
- Patch #2:
- Create a no encryption version of the PAGE_KERNEL protection type
and use that in arch_apei_get_mem_attribute()
- General comment and patch description clean up
