In this case it would not work as the launch enclave is still part of
the kernel and it would create a dependency how the user space defines
paths. If using pipe specifically is an issue, I could easily use shmem
file as a mean for communiation.

The way I implemented is much like how I did arch/x86/realmode with HPA
and it has kind of comparable requirements, part of the kernel but not
exactly code living in the kernel namespace.
