There's no CC_VENDOR_AMD_VTOM. How many times do I need to explain this?!
CC_VENDOR is well the CC vendor - not some special case.

IOW, the goal here is for generic SNP functionality to be the same for
*all* SNP guests. We won't do the AMD's version of vTOM enablement,
Hyper-V's version of vTOM enablement and so on. It must be a single
vTOM feature which works on *all* hypervisors as vTOM is a generic SNP
feature - not Hyper-V feature.

That sounds like the right direction to take.

You and me too. So I guess we should look at Tianyu's set first.

Thx.
