Hi, Boris
Last week, I had tried many ways to do this work, but it looks like that the ways of
deducing address is not suitable to another scenarios, such as mapping some devices
mmio space, which are unencrypted, and the device mmio space is outside kdump kernel
like the old memory, but the old memory is encrypted, we can't find the general rules
to decide when to encrypt or not. So it should be the best way that the caller care about
encryption or not. What do you think?
