Ok. I will update the cover letter with brief introduction to
changes involved.

How about following?

In TDX guest, attestation process generally involves the following steps:

1. Get the TDREPORT using user specified REPORTDATA. This is implemented
   using TDG.MR.TDREPORT Module call. An IOCTL interface is added to let
   userspace get the TDREPORT data  (implemented in patch #1).
   
2. Using the TDREPORT data, generate a remotely verifiable signed Quote.
   Quote can be generated either using GetQuote hypercall or by communicating
   with VMM/Quoting Enclave(QE) using VSOCK. In this patch set, only the
GetQuote hypercall model is supported. Since Quote generation is an
asynchronous request, and takes more time, we let VMM notify the TDX Guest
using the callback interrupt. Patch # 2-5 implements Quote generation support,
in which Patch # 2 implements the callback interrupt support.
