I assume this is a rethorical question and I notice what I suggested
looks as bad as my earlier commit message :-)

So, I gave it some thought that and decided to "open code" the paragraph
as

"Add sgx_vma_access() function that implements 'access' virtual function
of struct vm_operations_struct. Use formentioned leaf instructions to
achieve read and write primitives for the enclave memory."

I think this starts to have the right balance and is understandable.

Still open for futher suggestion of course.
