The ".." should be unnecessary, e.g. x86.h is obviously a level up.

s/spp_supported/enable_spp to be consistent with all the other booleans.

Is there a reason this isn't exposed as a module param?

And if this is to be on by default, then the flag itself should be
initialized to '1' so that it's clear to readers that the feature is
enabled by default (if it's supported). Looking at only this code, I would
think that SPP is forced off and can't be enabled.

That being said, turning on the enable_spp control flag should be the last
patch in the series, i.e. it shouldn't be turned on until all the
underlying support code is in place. So, I would keep this as is, but
invert the code in hardware_setup() below. That way the flag exists and
is checked, but can't be turned on without modifying the code. Then when
all is said and done, you can add a patch to introduce the module param
and turn on the flag by default (if that's indeed what we want).

As above, invert this to disable spp when it's not supported, or when EPT
is disabled (or not supported).
