Folks (sorry for top posting): I've now taken my old NUC7 out of the

Thanks for testing this Jarkko! Not sure on next steps, do you want me
to re-post the series with the Tested-by tag for all commits or will you
add that? Let me know if something from my side is needed.
Off-topic: I wish both Intel and AMD straighten up and deliver some
"home friendly" development hardware for the latest stuff. Just my
stance but the biggest quality risk I see in both TDX and SNP is that
the patches are made by an enterprise and reviewed (properly) *only*
by other huge enterprises.
Yes, I totally agree on this. It is really unfortunate that things like
SGX are not (anymore) available on home consumer hardware and you have
to buy expensive servers for this, which also change every new CPU
generation. Having some kind of "developer boards" like is more the case
in embedded systems would be a great and very welcome evolution, if only
it were to happen..
I skim status of both from time to time but yeah not much attachment
or motivation to do more than that as you either need a cloud access
or partnership with Intel or AMD. "Indie" style seems to be disliked
these days... You can extrapolate from this that there must be a bunch
of maintainers around the Linux kernel that feel the same. Not saying
that particularly my contribution would be that important.
Sort of even if let's say Intel would provide me a partner access I
might not be that interested because I prefer my own (physical)
I also understand this and share the concern. FWIW for some things
(e.g., uarch attack research) remote access does also not really hold up
to bare-metal access IMO.
