While doing minor KVM cleanup to account various kernel allocations, I
noticed that all of the SEV command buffers are allocated via kmalloc(),
even for commands whose payloads is smaller than a pointer.  After much
head scratching, the only reason I could come up with for dynamically
allocating the command data is CONFIG_VMAP_STACK=y.

This series teaches __sev_do_cmd_locked() to gracefully handle vmalloc'd
command buffers by copying such buffers an internal buffer before sending
the command to the PSP.  The SEV driver and KVM are then converted to use
the stack for all command buffers.

The first patch is optional, I included it in case someone wants to
backport it to stable kernels.  It wouldn't actually fix bugs, but it
would make debugging issues a lot easier if they did pop up.

Tested everything except sev_ioctl_do_pek_import(), I don't know anywhere
near enough about the PSP to give it the right input.

Based on kvm/queue, commit f96be2deac9b ("KVM: x86: Support KVM VMs
sharing SEV context") to avoid a minor conflict.

Thanks for the series. Post SNP series, I was going to move all the
command buffer allocation to the stack. You are ahead of me :). I can
certainly build upon your series.

The behavior of the SEV-legacy command is changed when SNP firmware is
in the INIT state. All the legacy commands that cause a firmware to
write to memory must be in the firmware state before issuing the
command. One of my patch in the SNP series is using an internal memory
before sending the command to the PSP.

Looking forward to the SNP support, may I ask you to remove the
vmalloc'd buffer check and use a page for the internal buffer ? In SNP
series, I can simply transition the internal page to firmware state
before issuing the command.
