Hi Rafael, Igor,

On my test machine, the acpi_memory_device_add() is not called for system
memory. It probably because my machine doesn't have memory device in ACPI.

I don't know whether we can have any memory device in ACPI if such memory is
present during boot? Any comments here?

And CC_ATTR_ACPI_MEMORY_HOTPLUG_DISABLED is only true on TDX bare-metal system,
but cannot be true in Qemu guest. But yes if this flag ever becomes true in
guest, then I think we may have problem here. I will do more study around ACPI.
Thanks for comments!
