SubjectRE: [PATCH Part2 v6 05/49] x86/sev: Add RMP entry lookup helpers

[AMD Official Use Only - General]

Hello Boris,

Ok.

Ok, I will add a new corresponding rmptable_entry() function here, should be usable for getting the large
RMP entry below too.

Yes, makes sense to move it to arch/x86.

Thanks,
