Lamme repeat my suggestion:
So beef up the logic in __ioremap_caller() to figure out based on the
address whether to access the memory encrypted or not. In general, you
can deduce, based on the region you're mapping, whether you need to map
in encrypted or decrypted.
addr = elfcorehdr_addr;
/* Read Elf header */
rc = elfcorehdr_read((char *)&ehdr, sizeof(Elf64_Ehdr), &addr);
if (rc < 0)
elfcorehdr_addr has that elfcorehdr address. So you can check which address
you're mapping and do:
prot = __ioremap_compute_prot(...);
and that __ioremap_compute_prot() function which you will add will have
all that logic to determine encrypted or not by comparing addresses etc.
Does that make more sense?
