Hmm, I'm not familiar with that BIOS option so I'm not exactly sure what
it is doing under the covers.  Having said that, it would seem that a
register read is indicating that SEV is supported when it is not on this
platform.  Maybe the register read is returning all 1s, (i.e. 0xffffffff).

You can work around this by blacklisting the ccp driver module for now.
In the mean time, we'll try to understand what is occurring here and
provide a fix if we can.

Thanks,
Tom
