CONFIG_ASYMMETRIC_PUBLIC_KEY_SUBTYPE is a tristate. If this config
is set to "=m", ima_asymmetric_keys.c is built as a kernel module.

Defined an intermediate boolean config namely
CONFIG_IMA_MEASURE_ASYMMETRIC_KEYS that is
defined when CONFIG_IMA and CONFIG_ASYMMETRIC_PUBLIC_KEY_SUBTYPE
are defined.

Asymmetric key structure is defined only when
CONFIG_ASYMMETRIC_PUBLIC_KEY_SUBTYPE is defined. Since the IMA hook
measures asymmetric keys, the IMA hook is defined in
ima_asymmetric_keys.c which is built only if
CONFIG_IMA_MEASURE_ASYMMETRIC_KEYS is defined.

For the time being, I've pushed out this patch with the existing patch
description to next-integrity-testing, but the patch description
should be rewritten clearer.  For example,

As a result of the asymmetric public keys subtype being defined as a
tristate, with the existing IMA Makefile, ima_asymmetric_keys.c could
be built as a kernel module.  To prevent this from happening, this
patch defines and uses an intermediate Kconfig boolean option named
IMA_MEASURE_ASYMMETRIC_KEYS.

Please let me know if you're ok with this wording.

thanks,

Mimi

That sounds perfect. Thanks for your help Mimi.
