I'm guessing this is in sev-shared.c because it is going to be used by
both stages?

State what this is:

/* Bitmap of SEV features supported by the hypervisor */

> +static u64 hv_features __section(".data");

Also, I'm assuming that bitmap remains immutable during the guest
lifetime so you can do:

static u64 hv_features __ro_after_init;

instead, which will do:

static u64 hv_features __attribute__((__section__(".data..ro_after_init")));

and it'll be in the data section and then also marked read-only after
init, after mark_rodata_ro() more specifically.

Thx.
