Because ima_pcr_extend() to operate the TPM chip, this process is
very time-consuming, for IMA, this is a blocking action, especially
when the TPM is in self test state, this process will block for up
to second level.

Because the return result of ima_pcr_extend() is of no concern to IMA,
it only affects the audit of IMA, so this patch use async_schedule()
and PCR extend event serial queue to asynchronously perform the
ima_pcr_extend() operation and do an audit operation at the end.

In a vtpm scenario, I added the measure policy of BPRM and MMAP to
compare the efficiency before and after applying the patch. The results
show that the overall startup efficiency of conventional processes can
be increased by 5% to 10%. I believe this efficiency increase It will
be more obvious on real hardware tpm.

  Use a queue to queue tpm extend operations to avoid out of order
