OK, so sgx_validate_secs() is the validation of what the CPU requires
from the contents of the SECS. That is mean by "architectural
correctness".

I spotted the glitch that makes this confusing.

The change that the comment is related is

https://lore.kernel.org/linux-sgx/20200716135303.276442-16-jarkko.sakkinen@linux.intel.com/

This check in sgx_encl_init() should be relocated to this commit:

	/* Check that the required attributes have been authorized. */
	if (encl->secs_attributes & ~encl->allowed_attributes)
		return -EACCES;

It is the "enforcement of restricted and disallowed attributes" part.

Does this make sense to you?
