Hi, Vitaly,
After looked into the issue and others, I feel to make SPP co-existing
with nested VM is not good, the major reason is, L1 pages protected by
SPP are transparent to L1 VM, if it launches L2 VM, probably the
pages would be allocated to L2 VM, and that will bother to L1 and L2.
Given the feature is new and I don't see nested VM can benefit
from it right now, I would like to make SPP and nested feature mutually
exclusive, i.e., detecting if the other part is active before activate one
feature,what do you think of it? 
thanks!
