Subject[PATCH v12 29/46] x86/boot: Add Confidential Computing type to setup_data
While launching the encrypted guests, the hypervisor may need to provide
some additional information during the guest boot. When booting under the
EFI based BIOS, the EFI configuration table contains an entry for the
confidential computing blob that contains the required information.

To support booting encrypted guests on non-EFI VM, the hypervisor needs to
pass this additional information to the kernel with a different method.

For this purpose, introduce SETUP_CC_BLOB type in setup_data to hold the
physical address of the confidential computing blob location. The boot
loader or hypervisor may choose to use this method instead of EFI
configuration table. The CC blob location scanning should give preference
to setup_data data over the EFI configuration table.

In AMD SEV-SNP, the CC blob contains the address of the secrets and CPUID
pages. The secrets page includes information such as a VM to PSP
communication key and CPUID page contains PSP filtered CPUID values.
Define the AMD SEV confidential computing blob structure.

While at it, define the EFI GUID for the confidential computing blob.
