SGX Enclave Page Cache (EPC) memory allocations are separate from normal
RAM allocations, and are managed solely by the SGX subsystem. The
existing cgroup memory controller cannot be used to limit or account for
SGX EPC memory, which is a desirable feature in some environments.  For
example, in a Kubernates environment, a user can request certain EPC
quota for a pod but the orchestrator can not enforce the quota to limit
runtime EPC usage of the pod without an EPC cgroup controller.

Utilize the misc controller [admin-guide/cgroup-v2.rst, 5-9. Misc] to
limit and track EPC allocations per cgroup. Earlier patches have added
the "sgx_epc" resource type in the misc cgroup subsystem. Add basic
support in SGX driver as the "sgx_epc" resource provider:

- Set "capacity" of EPC by calling misc_cg_set_capacity()
- Update EPC usage counter, "current", by calling charge and uncharge
APIs for EPC allocation and deallocation, respectively.
- Setup sgx_epc resource type specific callbacks, which perform
initialization and cleanup during cgroup allocation and deallocation,

With these changes, the misc cgroup controller enables user to set a hard
limit for EPC usage in the "misc.max" interface file. It reports current
usage in "misc.current", the total EPC memory available in
"misc.capacity", and the number of times EPC usage reached the max limit
in "".

For now, the EPC cgroup simply blocks additional EPC allocation in
sgx_alloc_epc_page() when the limit is reached. Reclaimable pages are
still tracked in the global active list, only reclaimed by the global
reclaimer when the total free page count is lower than a threshold.

Later patches will reorganize the tracking and reclamation code in the
global reclaimer and implement per-cgroup tracking and reclaiming.

For consistency sake I'd also add co-developed-by for Kristen. This is
at least the format suggested by kernel documentation.

She is the "From Author", so only Signed-off-by is needed for her according to the second example in the doc[1]?
