The "else if" is correct. Version Array (VA) pages have 512 slots that hold
metadata for evicted EPC pages, i.e. swapping a page out of the EPC requires
a VA slot. For simplicity (LOL), the approach we are taking for initial
support is to reserve a VA slot when adding a page to the enclave[*]. In most
cases, reserving a slot does not require allocating a new VA page, e.g. to
reserve slots 1-511 of the "current" VA page. The if-elif is handling the
case where the current VA page is fully reserved and a new one needs to be
allocated. The if handles the error, the elif handles success, i.e.

if (IS_ERR(va_page)) <- needed a new VA page, allocation failed
return PTR_ERR(va_page);
else if (va_page) <- needed a new VA page, allocation succeeded
list_add(&va_page->list, &encl->va_pages);
else
<- reused the current VA page

When reusing a VA page, we obviously don't want to readd the page to the list
of va_pages, and the error handling path also shouldn't free the VA page.
