Hi Boris,

I will address all your feedback in next rev.

The debug statement is very helpful during development, it gives me the full
view of what command we send to PSP, data dump of command buffer before and
after the request completion. e.g when dyndbg is enabled the output looks like
this:

[392035.621308] ccp 0000:02:00.2: sev command id 0x4 buffer 0x000080146d232820
[392035.621312] (in): 00000000: 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000
[392035.624725] (out): 00000000: 0e00 0000 0000 0b00 0000 0000

The first debug line prints command ID, second line prints memory dump of the command
structure and third line prints memory dump of command structure after PSP processed
the command.

The caller will use sev_issue_cmd() to issue PSP command. At this time we know
the command id and a opaque pointer (this points to command structure for command id).
Caller does not give us length of the command structure hence we need to derive it
from the command id using sev_cmd_buffer_len(). The command structure length is fixed
for a given command id.


Thanks
Brijesh
