Subject: [PATCH 2/3] ima_fs: Reorder input parameter validation in
 ima_write_policy()

From: Markus Elfring <elfring@...rs.sourceforge.net>
Date: Tue, 24 Jan 2017 22:38:00 +0100

Move validation for the input parameter "ppos" to the beginning in this
function so that a following check for the input parameter "datalen"
can be occasionally avoided earlier.
