I'll change it to "Add SGX enclave driver".

Neither can I.

I rephrased the whole paragraph:

"
The mmap() permissions are capped by the contained enclave page
permissions. The mapped areas must also be opaque, i.e. each page address
must contain a page. This logic is implemented in sgx_encl_may_map().
