Subject: [PATCH 2] x86/mm/mem_encrypt: Disable all instrumentation for SME
 early files

Enablement of AMD's Secure Memory Encryption feature is determined
very early after start_kernel() is entered. Part of this procedure
involves scanning the command line for the parameter 'mem_encrypt'.

To determine intended state, the function sme_enable() uses library
functions cmdline_find_option() and strncmp().  Their use occurs early
enough such that we can't assume that any instrumentation subsystem is
initialized. For example, making calls to a KASAN-instrumented
function before KASAN is set up will result in the use of uninitialized
memory and a boot failure.

When AMD's SME support is enabled, conditionally disable instrumentation
of these dependent functions in lib/string.c and arch/x86/lib/cmdline.c.

Fixes: aca20d546214  ("x86/mm: Add support to make use of Secure Memory Encryption")
