NUMA patches introduced this change to __sgx_sanitize_pages():

-		if (!ret)
-			list_move(&page->list, &section->page_list);
-		else
+		if (!ret) {
+			/*
+			 * page is now sanitized.  Make it available via the SGX
+			 * page allocator:
+			 */
+			list_del(&page->list);
+			sgx_free_epc_page(page);
+		} else {
+			/* The page is not yet clean - move to the dirty list. */
 			list_move_tail(&page->list, &dirty);
-		spin_unlock(&section->lock);
+		}

This was done for the reason that it is best to keep the logic to assign
available-for-use EPC pages to the correct NUMA lists in a single location.

The problem is that the sgx_nr_free_pages is also incremented by
sgx_free_epc_pages(), and thus it ends up having double the number of pages

The count was even before NUMA patches kind of out-of-sync, i.e. free pages
count was incremented before putting them to the free list, but it didn't
matter that much, because sanitization is fairly fast and it only prevented
ksgxd to trigger small time after the system had powered on.

Fixes: 51ab30eb2ad4 ("x86/sgx: Replace section->init_laundry_list with sgx_dirty_page_list")

* Wrote more verbose and detailed description what is going on.
* Split out from the patches. This is urgent - the attributes can wait.
