Tom, in his laconic way, doesn't want to explain to us why is this even
needed...

:)

/me reads the code

/me reads the GHCB spec

So how about expanding that commit message as to why this is done, why
needed, etc?

Thx.

if (sev-something)
bla

Please wrap at least those last two into a

sev_setup_real_mode()

or so.
