[for-6.0 v5 08/13] securable guest memory: Introduce sgm "ready" flag

From: David Gibson
Subject: [for-6.0 v5 08/13] securable guest memory: Introduce sgm "ready" flag
Date: Fri, 4 Dec 2020 16:44:10 +1100

The platform specific details of mechanisms for implementing securable
guest memory may require setup at various points during initialization.
Thus, it's not really feasible to have a single sgm initialization hook,
but instead each mechanism needs its own initialization calls in arch or
machine specific code.

However, to make it harder to have a bug where a mechanism isn't properly
initialized under some circumstances, we want to have a common place,
relatively late in boot, where we verify that sgm has been initialized if
it was requested.

This patch introduces a ready flag to the SecurableGuestMemory base type
to accomplish this, which we verify just before the machine specific
initialization function.
