Is it possible to create a enclave in the linux kernel module. I use the eclipse IDE. If it is possible, can you give me a hint.

AFAIK, you can not create an enclave in kernel module. Enclave is basically entered  through Ring3 applications (user mode) and not through kernel modules. You can not have kernel functionality in Enclaves.

For more information on Enclaves. you can refer to below link :
