Subject[RFC v1 17/26] x86/boot: Avoid unnecessary #VE during boot process
Date
From: Sean Christopherson <sean.j.christopherson@intel.com>

Skip writing EFER during secondary_startup_64() if the current value is
also the desired value. This avoids a #VE when running as a TDX guest,
as the TDX-Module does not allow writes to EFER (even when writing the
current, fixed value).

Also, preserve CR4.MCE instead of clearing it during boot to avoid a #VE
when running as a TDX guest. The TDX-Module (effectively part of the
hypervisor) requires CR4.MCE to be set at all times and injects a #VE
if the guest attempts to clear CR4.MCE.
