Thank you. Your observation was really important because having half
working RIE support hanging around would only have potential to cause
unnecessary maintenance burden. It would even make adding a legit RIE
support later on somewhat more difficult.

I updated the commit under discussion in my tree [*] with a fix that
adds the following to the beginning of sgx_encl_may_map():

/*
 * Disallow RIE tasks as their VMA permissions might conflict with the
 * enclave page permissions.
 */
if (!!(current->personality & READ_IMPLIES_EXEC))
	return -EACCES;
