This is a CPU pool that can be set by the root user and that includes
CPUs set aside to be used for the enclave(s) setup; these CPUs are
offlined. From this CPU pool, the kernel logic chooses the CPUs that are
set for the created enclave(s).

The cpu-list format is matching the same that is documented here:

https://www.kernel.org/doc/html/latest/admin-guide/kernel-parameters.html

I've also thought of having a sysfs entry for the setup of this enclave
CPU pool.

I removed this and other file ops occurrences that do nothing for now.

This logic is completed in the next patch in the series.

Done, I removed it for now.

True, this is not needed. Removed the memset() call.

Updated to pr_err().

Thank you.
