I'm not opposed to adding a kernel param to disable SGX. At one point
there was a proposal to extend clearcpuid to allow disabling multiple
feature bits, but it looks like that went the way of the dodo.

Note, such a param would disable SGX entirely, e.g. clear the feature bit
in /proc/cpuinfo and prevent any in-kernel SGX code from running.
