This is an optimization of a set of sgx-related codes, each of which
is independent of the patch. Because the second and third patches have
conflicting dependencies, these patches are put together.

v3 changes:
  * split free_cnt count and spin lock optimization into two patches

v2 changes:
  * review suggested changes

This patch uses the library function `getauxval(AT_SYSINFO_EHDR)`
instead of the custom function `vdso_get_base_addr` to obtain the
base address of vDSO, which will simplify the code implementation.

The spin lock of sgx_epc_section only locks the page_list. The
EREMOVE operation and init_laundry_list is not necessary in the
protection range of the spin lock. This patch reduces the lock
range of the spin lock in the function sgx_sanitize_section()
and only protects the operation of the page_list.

`section->free_cnt` represents the free page in sgx_epc_section,
which is assigned once after initialization. In fact, just after the
initialization is completed, the pages are in the `init_laundry_list`
list and cannot be allocated. This needs to be recovered by EREMOVE
of function sgx_sanitize_section() before it can be used as a page
that can be allocated. The sgx_sanitize_section() will be called in
the kernel thread ksgxd.

This patch moves the initialization of `section->free_cnt` from the
initialization function `sgx_setup_epc_section()` to the function
`sgx_sanitize_section()`, and then accumulates the count after the
successful execution of EREMOVE. This seems to be more reasonable,
free_cnt will also truly reflect the allocatable free pages in EPC.

In the function sgx_create_enclave(), the direct assignment
operation of attributes_mask determines that the ioctl PROVISION
operation must be executed after the ioctl CREATE operation,
which will limit the flexibility of sgx developers.

This patch takes the assignment of `attributes_mask` from the
function sgx_create_enclave() has been moved to the function
sgx_open() to avoid this restriction.

In this scenario, there is no case where va_page is NULL, and
the error has been checked. The if condition statement here is
redundant, so remove the condition detection.

So you just crashed machines that have panic-on-warn enabled.  Don't do
that for no reason, just handle the error and move on.

I remember asking about previous patches. I don't recall of getting
any responses to anything basically.

The WARN will only fire if someone introduces a kernel bug.  It's one part
documentation, two parts helping detect future breakage.  Even if the VA page
management is significantly reworked, I'm having a hard time envisioning a
scenario where adding VA pages before ECREATE would be anything but a kernel bug.

I could bet some money that this does not bring any significant
performance gain.

Someone can try to allocate a page while sanitize process is in progress.

I think it is better to keep critical sections in the form that when you
leave from one, the global state is legit.

I prefer to use the word "optimize" only if there is supporting
data to show that the code change has significant value.

The commit message should explicit that the API behaviour changes

This is fine. The check does not make sense.

Yes, this does not bring performance gains. This is not a change for 
performance, mainly to make the value of free_cnt look more accurate.

Do you mean to move the critical section to protect the entire while 
loop? Of course, this is also possible, sanitize is a process only 
needed for initialization, and the possibility of conflict is very small.

The big picture of this change to me, to be frank is that it's completely
useless.
