OK.

I have a better idea. See below.

Right.

Yes.

Yes, let's remove it.

Instead, let's just:

1. Have a global sgx_free_epc_list and remove sgx_epc_section.
Pages from this are allocated from this in LIFO fashion.
2. Instead add struct list_head node_list and use that for node
associated pages.
3. Replace 'int section' with 'int node'.

This will remove one layer of abstraction and provide better fallback
scheme.

E.g. allocate:

1. Check node_list of current node.
2. As a fallback check sgx_free_epc_list.
3. list_del() for two lists.
