The LE pubkey hash MSRs are special snowflakes. They get reset to Intel's
default key on any loss of EPC, e.g. if the system does a suspend/resume
cycle. The approach we took (obviously) is to assume the kernel's cache can
be stale at any given time. The alternative would be to try and track loss
of EPC conditions and emulate the reset, but that's a bit dicey on bare
metal as any missed case would hose SGX, and in a VM it's theoretically
impossible to handle as a particularly unhelpful VMM could emulate loss of
EPC at will.

Yes, this need a big fat comment.
