SubjectRe: [PATCHv5 06/12] x86/boot/compressed: Handle unaccepted memory
Kirill, I've been tracking these changes to see if we can handle the
unaccepted memory type for SEV-SNP, but testing has been an issue. The
proposed patch in Ovmf to introduce unaccepted memory seems to have
stalled out last September
(https://www.mail-archive.com/devel@edk2.groups.io/msg35842.html) and
is particularly difficult to adapt to SEV-SNP since it doesn't follow
the TDVF way of initializing all memory. Is there a different
development I might have missed so that we might test these cases?
Without the UEFI introducing EFI_UNACCEPTED_MEMORY type, any kernel
uses are essentially dead code.

Thanks,
-Dionna
