Why? The number of pages processed is effectively returned via the params
on any error, e.g. wouldn't it be more appropriate to return -ERESTARTSYS?
And I don't see any reason to add an arbitrary cap on the number of pages,
e.g. SGX plays nice with the scheduler and signals, and restricting the
number of EPC pages available to a process via cgroups (returning -ENOMEM)
is a better solution for managing EPC.
