Intel TDX architecture does not prescribe a specific software

This monster patch needs splitting up. At least into io + mmio + fifo.
Adding the tdx helper functions can be a separate patch too.
Ok, this patch will be split up into io+mmio+fifo in the next version.

Calling CPUID should not be needed, we have a new fancy
ConfidentialComputing PCD for that now.
The gUefiCpuPkgTokenSpaceGuid.PcdConfidentialComputingGuestAttr is defined in UefiCpuPkg. While BaseIoLibIntrinsicSev is in MdePkg.
If the ConfidentialComputing PCD is used, then UefiCpuPkg has to be included in BaseIoLibIntrinsicSev.inf.
I check all the *.inf under MdePkg but no one *.inf include UefiCpuPkg.
I am not sure if UefiCpuPkg can be included in BaseIoLibIntrinsicSev.inf.

The new wrappers in IoLibFifo.c should also check for sev, so we have
something along the lines of ...

switch (getpcd(cc)) {
case tdx:
case sev:

... instead of hiding the default case in IoFifoSev.nasm.

Maybe that's something to cleanup for amd (Brijesh?) beforehand, so the
structure is there already and the tdx patches just need to add the "case tdx:"
Tdx patches can first use above structure. AMD can update it later. Either way is ok.
