It was the AMD_MEM_ENCRYPT_ACTIVE_BY_DEFAULT dependency that tripped me up. To
get KVM to enable SEV/SEV-ES by default, that needs to be enabled, which in turn
requires AMD_MEM_ENCRYPT=y. I didn't realize that there isn't actually a
dependency on AMD_MEM_ENCRYPT=y

Agreed, I'll send a KVM patch to remove the AMD_MEM_ENCRYPT_ACTIVE_BY_DEFAULT
dependency.
