Preserving __iomem is desirable. There aren't side effects per se,
but direct non-enclave accesses to the EPC get abort page semantics so
the kernel shouldn't be directly dereferencing a pointer to the EPC.
Though by that argument, sgx_epc_bank.va, sgx_epc_addr's return and
all ENCLS helpers should be tagged __iomem.

For documentation purposes, maybe it would be better to use __private
or "#define __sgx_epc __iomem" and use that?
