Subject: [PATCH 0/2] SELinux: Measure state and hash of policy using IMA

Critical data structures of security modules are currently not measured.
Therefore an attestation service, for instance, would not be able to
attest whether the security modules are always operating with the policies
and configuration that the system administrator had setup. The policies
and configuration for the security modules could be tampered with by
malware by exploiting kernel vulnerabilities or modified through some
inadvertent actions on the system. Measuring such critical data would
enable an attestation service to better assess the state of the system.

IMA subsystem measures system files, command line arguments passed to
kexec, boot aggregate, keys, etc. It can be used to measure critical
data structures of security modules as well.

This change aims to address measuring critical data structures of
SELinux when they are initialized and when they are updated at runtime.

This series is based on commit 3db0d0c276a7 ("integrity: remove
redundant initialization of variable ret") in next-integrity

This series also has a dependency on the following patch series and
should be applied in the following order:
