That is correct. an SEV guest must use un-encrypted memory if it wishes
for the hypervisor to be able to see it. Also, to support DMA into the
guest, the target memory must be un-encrypted, which SEV does through the
DMA api and SWIOTLB.

SME must also use bounce buffers if the device does not support 48-bit
DMA, since the encryption bit is bit 47. Any device supporting DMA above
the encryption bit position can perform DMA without bounce buffers under
SME.

Yes, all the guest memory is currently pinned by calling GUP when creating
an SEV guest. This is to prevent page migration by the kernel. However,
the support to do page migration is available in the 0.17 version of the
SEV API via the COPY commmand. The COPY commannd allows for copying of
an encrypted page from one location to another via the PSP. The support
for this is not yet in the Linux kernel, but we are working on it. This
would remove the requirement of having to pin the guest memory.

The SEV API also supports migration of memory via the SEND_* and RECEIVE_*
APIs to support live migration.

Swapping, however, is not yet supported.

Thanks,
Tom
