Subject[PATCH 24/26] ACPICA: Avoid cache flush on TDX guest
Date
ACPI_FLUSH_CPU_CACHE() flushes caches on entering sleep states. It is
required to prevent data loss.

While running inside TDX guest, the kernel can bypass cache flushing.
Changing sleep state in a virtual machine doesn't affect the host system
sleep state and cannot lead to data loss.

The approach can be generalized to all guest kernels, but, to be
cautious, let's limit it to TDX for now.
