Btw, tglx has a another valid design concern here: why isn't this a
pv_ops thing? So that it is active only when the hypervisor is actually

I know, I know, this will run on SEV guests only because it is all
(hopefully) behind "if (sev_active())" checks but the clean and accepted
design is a paravirt call, I'd say.

Especially if some day other hypervisors should want to run SEV guests
