It's C-callable *iff your enclave follows the System V x86-64 ABI*. In addition, all registers not clobbered by the SGX ISA are passed to the enclave, not just those specified as parameter passing registers in the ABI. This is intentional to make the vDSO function usable in applications that use the current flexibility of ENCLU.
