Everything needing to be said seems to be included in the second
sentence.  Does the first sentence add anything?  "Define a new
critical data builtin policy" makes for a good Subject line.

The boot command line parameters are defined in Documentation/admin-
guide/kernel-parameters.txt.  Please update "ima_policy".

Unlike ima_fail_unverifiable_sigs, ima_use_critical_data is only used
during __init.  Please change "__ro_after_init" to "__initdata".  (The
critical data policy itself is defined properly as __ro_after_init.)
