Series consists of 2 parts: 1st is lockable SMRAM at SMBASE
and the 2nd adds means to enumerate APIC IDs for possible CPUs.

1st part [1-2/8]:
 In order to support CPU hotplug in secure boot mode,
 UEFI firmware needs to relocate SMI handler of hotplugged CPU,
 in a way that won't allow ring 0 user to break in priveleged
 SMM mode that firmware maintains during runtime.
 Used approach allows to hide RAM at default SMBASE to make it
 accessible only to SMM mode, which lets us to make sure that
 SMI handler installed by firmware can not be hijacked by
 unpriveleged user (similar to TSEG behavior). 

2nd part:
 mostly fixes and extra documentation on how to detect and use
 modern CPU hotplug interface (MMIO block).
 So firmware could reuse it for enumerating possible CPUs and
 detecting hotplugged CPU(s). It also adds support for
 CPHP_GET_CPU_ID_CMD command [7/8], which should allow firmware
 to fetch APIC IDs for possible CPUs which is necessary for
 initializing internal structures for possible CPUs on boot.
