While the statement is admittedly poorly worded, it is not wrong.
Without going into architectural details, If the AP instructions
are not available, they will not be interpreted for guest
level 1 - i.e., the linux host. If AP instructions are not interpreted
for guest level 1, then they will not be interpreted for guest
level 2 regardless of whether ECA_APIE is set for guest level 2 or
not. I don't see how CONFIG_ZCRYPT has anything to do with this.

Setting CONFIG_ZCRYPT=n simply means that the AP bus will not be built
and therefore the AP bus interfaces will not be available to KVM.
As far as ECA_APIE goes, there are only two choices: Set the bit to
enable SIE interpretation of AP instructions; Clear the bit to use
interception. We are only supporting SIE interpretation of AP
instructions at this time, so we need a sure-fire way to determine
if the AP instructions are installed, which is the point of this patch.
Since there are no intercept handlers at this time, when the AP bus
module on the guest is initialized, the init function will fail and
the bus will not come up. There are protections built into userspace
(QEMU in this case) to ensure that a guest is not started if the CPU
model feature for AP instructions is not turned on for the guest. The
CPU model feature will be enabled by the KVM only if the AP instructions
are installed on the linux host. Again, that is reason for this
patch.

As I commented above, we are supporting only pass through AP devices
at this time.
