+MKTME Configuration
+        MKTME is enabled by selecting CONFIG_X86_INTEL_MKTME on Intel
+        platforms supporting the MKTME feature.
+        mktme_storekeys is a kernel cmdline parameter.
+        This parameter allows the kernel to store the user specified
+        MKTME key payload. Storing this payload means that the MKTME
+        Key Service can always allow the addition of new physical
+        packages. If the mktme_storekeys parameter is not present,
+        users key data will not be stored, and new physical packages
+        may only be added to the system if no user type MKTME keys
+        are programmed.
