It is not the REPORTDATA. REPORTDATA is already included in the TDREPORT during
REPORT generation process (using TDG.MR.REPORT).

Spec does not clearly define the details about the additional data. I think it is
related to certificates.

Isaku, do you have more details about it?

Current ABI allows attestation service and agent to decide the quote size. So
we can't make assumptions on what that size will be.

Following is copied from TDX Module specification, sec titled "Measurement
and Attestation"

An Intel SGX Quoting Enclave, written specifically to support quoting Intel TDX TDs,
uses a new ENCLU instruction leaf, EVERIFYREPORT2, to help check the integrity of the
TDG.MR.REPORT. If it passes, the Quoting Enclave can use a certified quote signing key
to sign a quote containing the guest TD’s measurements and the additional data being
