Again: this should use PCD.
ConfidentialComputing PCD is set in PlatformPei. So any check of this PCD should be after PlatformPei.
Can we move that to the SEC phase?

MpInitLib will be included in CpuMpPei. So if PCD is checked in MpInitLib, then we must assume CpuMpPei is called after PlatformPei.
In current OVMF, CpuMpPei is called after PlatforPei. But I am not sure if it is always the case. Can we have such assumption?
Based on above consideration, CPUID is used to probe if it is Tdx guest.
Not sure. There are no explicit depex dependencies, so I suspect the
initialization order could change.

take care,
Gerd
