Kinda long-ish for my taste. I'll probably call it:


as it is implicit that it sets a feature bit.

Okay, fine with me.

Huh, what does that have to do with SME?

I picked the function where sev_status is being set, as this seemed to be
the correct place to set the feature bit.

Looking at it in more detail it might be preferable to do it in
sev_setup_arch() instead.
