So I don't think there's any guarantee that the KVM_SET_GUEST_DEBUG ioctl
couldn't be called before the VMSA is encrypted, meaning I can't check the
arch.guest_state_protected bit for that call. So if we really want to get
rid of the allow_debug() op, I'd need some other way to indicate that this
is an SEV-ES / protected state guest.

How are you planning on blocking this ioctl for TDX? Would the
arch.guest_state_protected bit be sit earlier than is done for SEV-ES?

Thanks,
Tom
