Maybe the names of CREATE and DESTROY weren't the best choice. The intent 
is to replace INIT-SIPI.

The GHCB document does not require thos. To accomplish the same thing that 
a CREATE does today, the guest does DESTROY followed by CREATE. What's the 
difference, the DESTROY will kick the vCPU out and make it non-runnable 
and the guest will immediately follow that with a CREATE and set the new 
state. All of which can be accomplished by just calling CREATE to begin 
with - the net is the same, the vCPU gets taken from one state to a new state.

I don't see any ambiguity. The document states when the VMSA becomes 
effective and there's no requirement/need to issue a DESTROY before 
another CREATE.

As I said, it was requested and there were no objections, all with the 
knowledge that the guest could "lie" about it. Maybe it is just to ensure 
the proper behavior of an "honest" guest? It makes for a small bit of 
extra work, but, yes, isn't very useful from a KVM perspective.

Thanks,
