Agreed. I have now idea how to improve this given the feedback so far
from you Andy and Greg. Thanks. It was hard to figure out the areas,
which require more explanation before putting something out first.

Skylake, the only microarchitecture available at the moment supporting
SGX, does not support IA32_SGXLEPUBKEYHASH* MSRs documented in Volume 3C
of the Intel x86 SDM.

There will be an Open Source SDK available in the near future. It comes
with Launch Enclave [1] that generates automatically EINITTOKENs for
debug enclaves. At the moment there is no process for signing producton
enclaves with the Intel root of trust for Linux (there is a process for
Windows).

In order to write test code I would need to use the SDK at minimum to
generate EINITTOKEN for the test enclave.

[1] The source code is available but with Skylake you cannot sign your
own Launch Enclave binary, which is of course possible in future when
the MSRs become available for having you own root of trust.
