Thanks for the new update! I still see the same FSGSBASE behavior on our platform.

That is, APs come up offline; masking out either FSGSBASE or RDPID from the
guest's CPUID results in all CPUs online.

Is that still expected with this patch set? (As you mentioned in an earlier reply,
I’m testing on a Rome system.)
