Series x86/sev: Measured Linux SEV guest with kernel/initrd/cmdline | expand

Currently booting with -kernel/-initrd/-append is not supported in SEV
confidential guests, because the content of these blobs is not measured
and therefore not trusted by the SEV guest.

However, in some cases the kernel, initrd, and cmdline are not secret
but should not be modified by the host.  In such a case, we want to
verify inside the trusted VM that the kernel, initrd, and cmdline are
indeed the ones expected by the Guest Owner, and only if that is the
case go on and boot them up (removing the need for grub inside OVMF in
that mode).

To support that, OVMF adds a special area for hashes of
kernel/initrd/cmdline; that area is expected to be filled by QEMU and
encrypted as part of the initial SEV guest launch.  This in turn makes
the hashes part of the PSP measured content, and OVMF can trust these
inputs if they match the hashes.

This series adds an SEV function to generate the table of hashes for
OVMF and encrypt it (patch 1/2), and calls this function if SEV is
enabled when the kernel/initrd/cmdline are prepared (patch 2/2).

Corresponding OVMF support was submitted to edk2-devel [1] (patch series
"Measured SEV boot with kernel/initrd/cmdline"); it's still under

 - Extract main functionality to sev.c (with empty stub in sev-stub.c)
 - Use sev_enabled() instead of machine->cgs->ready to detect SEV guest
 - Coding style changes
