Will change.

Will do. Did you intentionally omit the articles or would you be ok if I
change it to:

"Initialize an EPC page into an SGX Enclave Control Structure (SECS) page."
"Initialize an EPC page into a Version Array (VA) page."

I also notice that you prefer the comments to end with a period and I
will do so for all in the next version.

Thank you, I will use this description.

Please see below for another attempt that includes your proposed changes
so far. What do you think?

__ecreate():
/* Initialize an EPC page into an SGX Enclave Control Structure (SECS)
page. */

__eextend():
/* Hash a 256 byte region of an enclave page to SECS:MRENCLAVE. */

__eadd():
/* Copy a source page from non-enclave memory into the EPC. */

__einit():
/* Finalize enclave build, initialize enclave for user code execution */

__eremove():
/* Disassociate EPC page from its enclave and mark it as unused. */

__edbgwr():
/* Copy data to an EPC page belonging to a debug enclave. */

__edbgrd():
/* Copy data from an EPC page belonging to a debug enclave. */

__etrack():
/* Track that software has completed the required TLB address clears. */

__eldu():
/* Load, verify, and unblock an Enclave Page Cache (EPC) page. */

__eblock():
/* Make EPC page inaccessible to enclave, ready to be written to memory. */

__epa():
/* Initialize an EPC page into a Version Array (VA) page. */

__ewb():
/* Invalidate an EPC page and write it out to main memory. */
