Subject: [PATCH v2 1/5] x86/mm: Cleanup register saving in mem_encrypt_boot.S

Cleanup the use of push and pop and when registers are saved in the
mem_encrypt_boot.S file in order to improve the readability of the code.
Move parameter register saving into general purpose registers earlier
in the code and move all the pushes to the beginning of the function
with corresponding pops at the end.
