Subject: [PATCH v2] powerpc/ima: fix secure boot rules in ima arch policy

To prevent verifying the kernel module appended signature twice
(finit_module), once by the module_sig_check() and again by IMA, powerpc
secure boot rules define an IMA architecture specific policy rule
only if CONFIG_MODULE_SIG_FORCE is not enabled. This, unfortunately, does
not take into account the ability of enabling "sig_enforce" on the boot
command line (module.sig_enforce=1).

Including the IMA module appraise rule results in failing the finit_module
syscall, unless the module signing public key is loaded onto the IMA
keyring.

This patch fixes secure boot policy rules to be based on CONFIG_MODULE_SIG
instead.

Fixes: 4238fad366a6 ("powerpc/ima: Add support to initialize ima policy rules")
