Hi David and Chirstoph,

Are your preferences that we should make Gunyah builtin only or should add
fixing up S2 PTW errors (or something else)?

Also, do you extend that preference to modifying S2 mappings? This would
require any hypervisor driver that supports confidential compute
usecases to only ever be builtin.

Is your concern about unmapping data from kernel mapping, then module
being unloaded, and then having no way to recover the mapping? Would a
permanent module be better? The primary reason we were wanting to have
it as module was to avoid having driver in memory if you're not a Gunyah
