Part of making a good patch set is telling a bit of a story. In patch
4, you laid out 6 steps necessary to initialize TDX. On top of that,
there is infrastructure It would be great to lay that out in a way that
folks can actually follow along.

For instance, it would be great to tell the reader here that this patch
is an inflection point. It is transitioning out of the infrastructure
(patches 1->6) and into the actual "multi-steps" of initialization that
the module spec requires.

This patch is *TOTALLY* different from the one before it because it
actually _starts_ to do something useful.

But, you wouldn't know it from the changelog.

Please also note that the 0's are all just unused parameters. They mean
nothing.

It might be a bit unconventional, but can you imagine how well it would
tell the story if this comment said:

/*
* TODO:
* - Logical-CPU scope initialization (TDH_SYS_INIT_LP)
* - Enumerate capabilities and platform configuration
(TDH_SYS_CONFIG)
...
*/

and then each of the following patches that *did* those things removed
the TODO line from the list.

That TODO list could have been added in patch 4.
