We already have sev_issue_cmd_external_user() exported right?

Another option could be to make these wrappers more helpful and less
silly. For example callers need to know the PSP command format right
now, see sev_guest_decommission().

int sev_guest_decommission(struct sev_data_decommission *data, int *error)

Instead of taking @data this function could just take inputs to create

int sev_guest_decommission(u32 handle, int *error)
