Subject: [PATCH] x86: Remove unnecessary kmap() from sgx_ioc_enclave_init()

From: Ira Weiny <ira.weiny@...el.com>

kmap is inefficient and we are trying to reduce the usage in the kernel.
There is no readily apparent reason why the initp_page page needs to be
allocated and kmap'ed() but sigstruct needs to be page aligned and token
512 byte aligned.

In this case page_address() can be used instead of kmap_local_page() as
a much more efficient way to use the address because the page is
allocated GFP_KERNEL.

Remove the kmap and replace with page_address() to get a kernel address
for the alloc'ed page.

In addition add a comment regarding the alignment requirements as well
as 2 BUILD_BUG_ON's to ensure future changes to sigstruct and token do
not go unnoticed and cause a bug.

Changes from v1[1]:
	Use page_address() instead of kcmalloc() to ensure sigstruct is
	page aligned
	Use BUILD_BUG_ON to ensure token and sigstruct don't collide.
