This can be without major streches hoops packed way more. There are 12
bits free for use in the addr field. I can use low three bits for flags
and upper nine bits for va_offset.

I think I can also quite easily union epc_page and va_page fields.

With these changes the struct would shrink to:

struct sgx_encl_page {
	unsigned long addr;
	union {
		void *epc_page;
		struct sgx_va_page *va_page;
	struct list_head list;

I can rework this for v7.
