Off topic, any chance I can bribe/convince you to wrap your email replies closer
to 80 chars, not 100?  Yeah, checkpath no longer complains when code exceeds 80
chars, but my brain is so well trained for 80 that it actually slows me down a
bit when reading mails that are wrapped at 100 chars.

This.  Note, my pseudo-patch incorrectly looked at bits 15:8, that was just me
trying to go off memory.

Ah, I take it GPAW is a VM-scope knob?  I forget where we ended up with the ordering
of TDX commands vs. creating vCPUs.  Does KVM allow creating vCPU structures in
advance of the TDX INIT call?  If so, the least awful solution might be to use
