Thank you for the feedback. I agree with all your comments.

I'll also split the function into sgx_vma_read_word() and
sgx_vma_write_word(). Makes the code somewhat cleaner and nicer to trace.

I have to admit that I have overlooked this commit when preparing the
patch set. Even though I've written code myself, it's been a while and
I had hard time to get a grip what is going on when I read your
response, which makes your feedback even more valid :-)
