What I'm still missing is the chicken bit. I.e., to be able to boot with
"mem_encrypt=smeonly" or so, which disables the SEV side but can still
allow SME. For when SEV has issues and people want to disable it.

You can do the patch ontop of those and send it as a reply to this
thread - no need to wait to resend the whole thing again.

Thanks.
