Thank you, Tom.
This is a great question, we originally plan to implement SEV in subsequent patches, and
we are also working on SEV at present.
Furthermore, we have another known issue that the system can't jump into the second kernel
when SME is enabled and kaslr is disabled in kdump mode. It seems that is a complex problems,
maybe it is related to kaslr and SME, currently, i'm not sure the root cause, but we will
also plan to fix it. Can you give me any advice about this issue?
