Is O_RDWR required for /dev/sgx/enclave or would O_RDONLY suffice? Do
you do anything other than ioctl() calls on it?

What's the advantage of allocating an anon inode in the above? At
present anon inodes are exempted from inode-based checking, thereby
losing the ability to perform SELinux ioctl whitelisting, unlike the
file-backed /dev/sgx/enclave inode.

How would SELinux (or other security modules) restrict the authorized
enclaves that can be loaded via this interface? Would the sgx driver
invoke a new LSM hook with the regular/source VMAs as parameters and
allow the security module to reject the ENCLAVE_ADD operation? That
could be just based on the vm_file (e.g. whitelist what enclave files
are permitted in general) or it could be based on both the process and
the vm_file (e.g. only allow specific enclaves to be loaded into
specific processes).
