It is in the process of getting a TDX test developed (or rather updated).
Agreed, it requires verification that it fixes the original TDX issue. That is
why I raised it.

Reinette was working on this internally and some iterations were happening, but
we are trying to work on the public list as much as possible per your earlier
comments. So that is why she posted it.

There was at least some level of TDX integration in the past. I'm not sure what
exactly was tested, but we are going to re-verify it with the latest everything.
