My understanding is that a user could exhaust the ASIDs for encrypted
VMs if it was allowed to start an arbitrary number of KVM guests. So
we would need some kind of control. Is this correct?
If so, does /dev/psp provide any functionality that you believe is
dangerous for the KVM userspace (which runs in a very confined
environment)? Is this functionality blocked through capability
