CRYPTO_DEV_CCP_DD is supported on aarch64 and x86. Whereas the PSP
interface I am adding is available on x86 only hence its safe to add add
depend on CPU_SUP_AMD for CRYPTO_DEV_SP_PSP.

Yes its very much possible. The SEV FW provides two sets of commands 1)
platform certificate management and 2) guest management

The platform certificate management commands is used outside the
CONFIG_KVM_AMD.
