Heh, sure. I was trying 100 chars recently as an experiment to better quote code
in mails. I was also getting thrown a little.

Currently the values for the directly settable CPUID leafs come via a TDX
specific init VM userspace API. There was some discussion on forcing the values
provided there to be consistent with the CPUIDs set on the VCPUs later:

Which lead to:

So KVM has to reject KVM_SET_CPUID if it doesn't match the VM-wide configuration
anyway, however the VM-scoped CPUID state ends up getting configured. Then if we
leave the VM-scoped CPUID configuration with the VM-scoped operations it doesn't
force KVM_SET_CPUID to learn about rejecting TDX incompatible CPUID state (state
that is not directly configurable).

So should we look at making the TDX side follow a
KVM_GET_SUPPORTED_CPUID/KVM_SET_CPUID pattern for feature enablement? Or am I
misreading general guidance out of this specific suggestion around GPAW?
