SubjectRe: [RFC PATCH 00/35] SEV-ES hypervisor support
Apologies, Sean.

I thought I had replied to this but found it instead in my drafts folder...

I've taken much of your feedback and incorporated that into the next
version of the patches that I submitted and updated this response based on
that, too.

SEV-ES doesn't need to completely block these ioctls. SEV-SNP is likely to
do more of that. SEV-ES will still allow interrupts to be injected, or
registers to be retrieved (which will only contain what was provided in
the GHCB exchange), etc.

Of the listed ioctls, really the only ones I've updated are:


This allows reading of the tracking value registers
This prevents setting of register values

I haven't done anything with these either.

... and these.

For SEV-ES, we don't have those restrictions.

Yes, most of the above stuff doesn't apply to SEV-ES.
