I can't really parse this description.  Can I suggest replacement text?

Problem: KSM compares plain text.  It might try to merge two pages that
have the same plain text but different ciphertext and possibly different
encryption keys.  When the kernel encrypted the page, it promised that
it would keep it encrypted with _that_ key.  That makes it impossible to
merge two pages encrypted with different keys.

Solution: Never merge encrypted pages with different KeyIDs.
