Subject: [PATCH v7 4/6] x86/tdx: Forcefully disable legacy PIC for TDX guests

From: Sean Christopherson <sean.j.christopherson@...el.com>

Disable the legacy PIC (8259) for TDX guests as the PIC cannot be
supported by the VMM. TDX Module does not allow direct IRQ injection,
and using posted interrupt style delivery requires the guest to EOI
the IRQ, which diverges from the legacy PIC behavior.
