Hi Dave:
Thanks for your review. Hyper-V provides a para-virtualized
confidential computing solution based on the AMD SEV function and not
expose sev&sme capabilities to guest. So sme_me_mask is unset in the
Hyper-V Isolation VM. swiotlb_unencrypted_base is more general solution
to handle such case of different address space for encrypted and
decrypted memory and other platform also may reuse it.
