Subject[PATCH v5 03/16] x86/tdx: Exclude Shared bit from physical_mask
From: "Kirill A. Shutemov" <>

Just like MKTME, TDX reassigns bits of the physical address for
metadata. MKTME used several bits for an encryption KeyID. TDX
uses a single bit in guests to communicate whether a physical page
should be protected by TDX as private memory (bit set to 0) or
unprotected and shared with the VMM (bit set to 1).

Add a helper, tdx_shared_mask() to generate the mask. The processor
enumerates its physical address width to include the shared bit, which
means it gets included in __PHYSICAL_MASK by default.

Remove the shared mask from 'physical_mask' since any bits in
tdx_shared_mask() are not used for physical addresses in page table

Also, note that shared mapping configuration cannot be clubbed between
AMD SME and Intel TDX Guest platforms in common function. SME has
to do it very early in __startup_64() as it sets the bit on all
memory, except what is used for communication. TDX can postpone it,
as it don't need any shared mapping in very early boot.
