Hi Christoph:
Thanks for your review.

GHCB physical address is an address in extra address space which is
above shared gpa boundary reported by Hyper-V CPUID. The addresses below
shared gpa boundary treated as encrypted and the one above is treated as
decrypted. System memory is remapped in the extra address space and it
starts from the boundary. The shared memory with host needs to use
address in the extra address(pa + shared_gpa_boundary) in Linux guest.

Here is to map ghcb page for the communication operations with
Hypervisor(e.g, hypercall and read/write MSR) via GHCB page.

memremap() will go through iomem_resource list and the address in extra
address space will not be in the list. So I used ioremap_cache(). I will
memremap() instead of ioremap() here.

The struct will be added in the following patch. I will refresh the
following patch and use the struct hv_ghcb for the mapped point.

The above is to map ghcb for BSP and here does the same thing for APs
Will add a new function to avoid the duplication.

OK. I will add.
