It makes it harder to comment when I'm not on cc.

Hint, hint... ;)

We need a bit more information here as well.  What's the relationship
between NUMA nodes and sections?  How does the BIOS tell us which NUMA
nodes a section is in?  Is it the same or different from normal RAM and
PMEM?

So, we have a 'NUMA node' structure already: pg_data_t.  Why don't we
just hang the epc sections off there?

Hmm...  Time to see if I can still do math.

#define SGX_MAX_EPC_SECTIONS            8

(sizeof(struct sgx_epc_section *) + sizeof(int)) * 8 * MAX_NUMNODES

CONFIG_NODES_SHIFT=10 (on Fedora)
#define MAX_NUMNODES (1 << NODES_SHIFT)

12*8*1024 = ~100k.  Yikes.  For *EVERY* system that enables SGX,
regardless if they are NUMA or not.'

Trivial is great, this may be too trivial.

Adding a list_head to pg_data_t and sgx_epc_section would add
SGX_MAX_EPC_SECTIONS*sizeof(list_head)=192 bytes plus 16 bytes per
*present* NUMA node.

Yikes.  That's a horribly inefficient loop.  Consider if nodes 0 and
1023 were the only ones with EPC.  What would this loop do?  I think
it's a much better idea to keep a nodemask_t of nodes that have EPC.
Then, just do bitmap searches.

I'm not positive this works.  I *thought* these ->node_start_pfn and
->node_spanned_pages are really only guaranteed to cover memory which is
managed by the kernel and has 'struct page' for it.

EPC doesn't have a 'struct page', so won't necessarily be covered by the
pgdat-> and zone-> ranges.  I *think* you may have to go all the way
back to the ACPI SRAT for this.

It would also be *possible* to have an SRAT constructed like this:

0->1GB System RAM - Node 0
1->2GB Reserved   - Node 1
2->3GB System RAM - Node 0

Where the 1->2GB is EPC.  The Node 0 pg_data_t would be:

	pgdat->node_start_pfn = 0
	pgdat->node_spanned_pages = 3GB
