No. noexec only applies to file-backed VMAs, what you're describing is loading
an enclave from an anon VMA, which will still have VM_MAYEXEC.

I believe you're thinking of SELinux's EXECMEM, which is required to execute
from anonymous memory, and which we talked about (more than once) applying to
SGX enclaves.

That being said, I still dislike the idea of requiring VM_MAYEXEC, it's a hack
that doesn't really buy us much, if anything.
