keys queued for measurement should be freed if a custom IMA policy
was not loaded. Otherwise, the keys will remain queued forever
consuming kernel memory.

This patch defines a timer to handle the above scenario. The timer
is setup to expire 5 minutes after IMA initialization is completed.

If a custom IMA policy is loaded before the timer expires, the timer
is removed and any queued keys are processed for measurement.
But if a custom policy was not loaded, on timer expiration
queued keys are just freed.

Thanks.  This patch is now queued in next-integrity-testing.
