There is one thing you missed, otherwise I'm *very* satisfied with this

What you have missed IMHO is vcpu hottplug. So IMHO you should keep
kvm->arch.crypto.apie, and update it accordingly ...

... let's say here.

And here you can call kvm_s390_vcpu_crypto_setup(vcpu) (the changes to
this function will be required for hotplug) if you like

or keep this stuff, it does not really matter to me.

I tend to agree. I will give it a proper review when this gets more
formal (e.g. v4 (preferably) or patches to be fixed up to this series).

Please don't forget to revisit the discussion on kvm_s390_vm_set_crypto:
if the mechanism there isn't right for ECA.28 I think you should tell
us why it's OK for the other attributes if it's OK. If it is not then
I guess you will want to do a stand alone patch for that.
