Hi Rafael,

Thanks for the review. By "affect initialization" did you mean this
acpi_processor_add() is also called during kernel boot when any logical cpu is
brought up? Or do you mean ACPI CPU hotplug can also happen during kernel boot
(after acpi_processor_init())?

I see acpi_processor_init() calls acpi_processor_check_duplicates() which calls
acpi_evaluate_object() but I don't know details of ACPI so I don't know whether
this would trigger acpi_processor_add().

One thing is TDX doesn't support ACPI CPU hotplug is an architectural thing, so
it is illegal even if it happens during kernel boot. Dave's idea is the kernel
should speak out loudly if physical CPU hotplug indeed happened on (BIOS) TDX-
enabled platforms. Otherwise perhaps we can just give up initializing the ACPI
CPU hotplug in acpi_processor_init(), something like below?
