Right (checked SELinux documentation).

Got one idea from this. Right now creation and initialization does not
require any VMAs to be created (since v20). Requiring to map a VMA for
copying the data would bring in my opinion a glitch to this model that
we have done effort to build up.

What if we similarly change EADD ioctl in a way that it'd take an fd
and an offset? This way we can enforce policy to the source where the
enclave data is loaded from. On the other hand, loading SIGSTRUCT from
fd enforces a legit structure for the enclave.

This would still allow to construct enclaves in VMA independent way.

And also using fd gives robustness because it allows SIGSTRUCT
pulled from a file containing it (among other things).
