Now that I did all the changes discussed and then I remember why EADD
and EEXTEND had a common error code, and common behaviour. Obviously EADD
can also fail because of EPC reset because it depends on a valid SECS

If we cannot distinct from EADD caused by EPC loss and EADD caused by
problems with the source, it should have the same error code, and also
the enclave should be deinitialized, whenver this happens.

So I would just revert to v38 behaviour, keeping of course the whole
check more visible in sgx_ioc_enclave_add_pages(), and just refine
the documentation better describe the whole situation.
