Thank you for the patch. One of feedback in RFC patches was to put the
command id and their definitions in amd-memory-encryption.txt hence I
was trying to follow that recommendation. Most of ioctls I have seen in
api.txt are either common or architecture specific. These commands are
vendor specific and I was not sure if they belong to api.txt. I am okay
with moving the definition to api.txt in next patch and we can see if
kvm folks have any objections.

Are you okay if I move the command id definition documentation later in
the patch -- basically include it as part of  'KVM: Define SEV key
management command id' [1]

The series does not implement the migration commands yet hence I took it
off.
