[PATCH V3 03/30] x86/sgx: Add wrapper for SGX2 EMODT function
From: Reinette Chatre
Date: Mon Apr 04 2022 - 17:38:51 EST
Add a wrapper for the EMODT ENCLS leaf function used to
change the type of an enclave page as maintained in the
SGX hardware's Enclave Page Cache Map (EPCM).
1) Updates the EPCM page type of the enclave page.
2) Sets the MODIFIED bit in the EPCM entry of the enclave page.
This bit is reset by the enclave by invoking ENCLU leaf
function EACCEPT or EACCEPTCOPY.
Access from within the enclave to the enclave page is not possible
while the MODIFIED bit is set.
After changing the enclave page type by issuing EMODT the kernel
needs to collaborate with the hardware to ensure that no logical
processor continues to hold a reference to the changed page. This
is required to ensure no required security checks are circumvented
and is required for the enclave's EACCEPT/EACCEPTCOPY to succeed.
Ensuring that no references to the changed page remain is
accomplished with the ETRACK flow.

Changes since V1:
- Split original patch ("x86/sgx: Add wrappers for SGX2 functions")
in three to introduce the SGX2 functions separately (Jarkko).
- Rewrite commit message to include how the EPCM within the hardware
is changed by the SGX2 function as well as the calling
