Subject: [PATCH v3] x86/sgx: Synchronize encl->srcu in sgx_encl_release().

Add synchronize_srcu_expedited() to sgx_encl_release() to catch a grace
period initiated by sgx_mmu_notifier_release().

A trivial example of a failing sequence with tasks A and B:

1. A: -> sgx_release()
2. B: -> sgx_mmu_notifier_release()
3. B: -> list_del_rcu()
3. A: -> sgx_encl_release()
4. A: -> cleanup_srcu_struct()

The loop in sgx_release() observes an empty list because B has removed its
entry in the middle, and calls cleanup_srcu_struct() before B has a chance
to calls synchronize_srcu().
