Most of the address field in the "struct sev_data_*" are physical 
addressess. The userspace will not be able to populate those fields. PSP 
or KVM may still need to assist filling the final hardware structure. 
Some of fields in hardware structure must be zero, so we need to add 
checks for it.

I can try posting RFC post SNP series and we can see how it all looks.
