Technically, not exactly. New mechanisms would have their own
initialization, which might go adjacent to this, or could be somewhere
else - the sev_kvm_init() is a no-op if a non-SEV mechanism is
selected (currently impossible).
The distinction is pretty subtle, though, so I've altered the comment
here in a way I hope explains it.
