Hmmm..., I must be missing something then. I thought early_identify_cpu()
will read the signature, which would be "IntelTDX ", right? Then that
is be compared against the structs that register via cpu_dev_register()
which would contain the x86_vendor value. I don't see anything registering
with the "IndexTDX " signature so I don't know how you'll get an
x86_vendor value of X86_VENDOR_INTEL.

I'm probably missing something there, but it shouldn't matter for this
routine going forward.

No, we don't.

Yeah, this is the problem with the name having guest in everything when
there are host and guest scenarios for AMD.

We have PR_GUEST_HOST_MEM_ENCRYPT but it would look strange to have

So I can work on a pre-patch series. It will be purely a replacement for
the current SME/SEV calls. You'll need to add all of the TDX support in a
subsequent patch in the TDX series. Given this is a pre-patch, I will
probably reset the flag values slightly and work on the names to be less
