Subject[RFC PATCH 02/12] x86/kexec/64: Forbid kexec when running as an SEV-ES guest
Date
From: Joerg Roedel <jroedel@suse.de>

For now, kexec is not supported when running as an SEV-ES guest. Doing
so requires additional hypervisor support and special code to hand
over the CPUs to the new kernel in a safe way.

Until this is implemented, do not support kexec in SEV-ES guests.
