Is there actually a use case for this? Exposing port IO to userspace
doesn't exactly improve security.

Given that i386 ABI requires EFLAGS.DF=0 upon function entry/exit, i.e. is
the de facto default, the DF bug implies this hasn't been tested. And I
don't see how this could possibly have worked for SEV given that the kernel
unrolls string I/O because the VMM can't emulate string I/O. Presumably
someone would have complained if they "needed" to run legacy crud. The
host and guest obviously need major updates, so supporting e.g. DPDK with
legacy virtio seems rather silly.

As in, the guest can't debug itself? Or the host can't debug the guest?
