Subject[PATCH v4 0/5] x86: Show in sysfs if a memory node is able to do encryption
Show for each node if every memory descriptor in that node has the

fwupd project plans to use it as part of a check to see if the users
have properly configured memory hardware encryption
capabilities. fwupd's people have seen cases where it seems like there
is memory encryption because all the hardware is capable of doing it,
but on a closer look there is not, either because of system firmware
or because some component requires updating to enable the feature.

It's planned to make it part of a specification that can be passed to
people purchasing hardware

These checks will run at every boot. The specification is called Host
Security ID:

We choosed to do it a per-node basis because although an ABI that
shows that the whole system memory is capable of encryption would be
useful for the fwupd usecase, doing it in a per-node basis gives also
the capability to the user to target allocations from applications to
NUMA nodes which have encryption capabilities.

Changes since v3:
Update date in Doc/ABI file.

More information about the fwupd usecase and the rationale behind
doing it in a per-NUMA-node.

Changes since v2:

e820__range_mark_crypto -> e820__range_mark_crypto_capable.

In e820__range_remove: Create a region with crypto capabilities
instead of creating one without it and then mark it.

Changes since v1:

Modify __e820__range_update to update the crypto capabilities of a
range; now this function will change the crypto capability of a range
if it's called with the same old_type and new_type. Rework
efi_mark_e820_regions_as_crypto_capable based on this.

Update do_add_efi_memmap to mark the regions as it creates them.

Change the type of crypto_capable in e820_entry from bool to u8.

Fix e820__update_table changes.

Remove memblock_add_crypto_capable. Now you have to add the region and
mark it then.

Better place for crypto_capable in pglist_data.

Martin Fernandez (5):
mm/memblock: Tag memblocks with crypto capabilities
mm/mmzone: Tag pg_data_t with crypto capabilities
x86/e820: Tag e820_entry with crypto capabilities
x86/efi: Tag e820_entries as crypto capable from EFI memmap
drivers/node: Show in sysfs node's crypto capabilities
