Subject[PATCHv5 29/30] ACPICA: Avoid cache flush inside virtual machines
Date
WBINVD is not supported in TDX guest and triggers #VE. There's no robust
way to emulate it. The kernel has to avoid it.

ACPI_FLUSH_CPU_CACHE() flushes caches usign WBINVD on entering sleep
states. It is required to prevent data loss.

While running inside virtual machine, 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.
