We have TDVMCALL<Service> in GHCI 1.5. It allows specifying the vector. I
don't know whether there's any future case that still needs

The TDVMCALL<Service> in GHCI 1.5 actually supports specifying the vector. It
currently neither clearly says "the VMM should inject event to the vCPU on which
the TDVMCALL<Service> is called", nor it allows specifying which vCPU to inject.
Assuming we can lobby (I am already lobbying, actually) to make either way, in
fact I think it can be used as IRQ way (like I described in my first reply).

I once lobbied to completely remove GetQuote (and SetupEventNotifyInterrupt)
from GHCI 1.0 and move TDVMCALL<Service> from GHCI 1.5 to 1.0, and define a new
sub-service for attestation -- GetQuote will be one command then, and we can
define more attestation related commands (which is likely) when needed. I
believe using TDVMCALL<Service> for GetQuote can actually allow kernel to use
IRQ way, but doesn't need a system vector. But this wasn't successful.
