I sincerely hope you don't mean this seriously.

Please add a member to task_struct which denotes that a task is an
sgx task, test that member where needed and forget real quickly about
running *any* *fixup* for unrelated tasks.

A struct which you defined instead of simply using struct
exception_table_entry even if it has a handler member which would remain
unused?

Let's not put code in vdso/ if it doesn't really belong there pls.
