Let me see if I understand it correctly: Hyper-V *baremetal* is using
the same ASPT spec to to talk to the *physical* PSP device?

Is that ASPT interface to talk to the PSP used by the L0 hypervisor?

Or does the L0 HV have a normal driver, similar to the Linux one,
without the functionality this ASPT spec provides?

So if you want to expose the same interface to the L1 guest, why isn't
Hyper-V emulating an ACPI device just like any other functionality? Why
does it need to reach into the interrupt handling internals?

I'd expect that the L0 HV would emulate a PSP device, the L1 would
simply load the Linux PSP device driver and everything should just work.

What's the point of that alternate access at all?

But I might still be missing something...
