The question can be further refined as why: why this is the best
possible set of substates to filter in?

"no holes" part is obvious as the consequence of not surpassing
permissions of any of the pages in range, as you could otherwise
break the state with ioctl(SGX_ENCLAVE_ADD_PAGES) with permssions
that are below the mmap permissions.
