Measuring keys requires a custom IMA policy to be loaded.
Keys should be queued for measurement if a custom IMA policy
is not yet loaded. Keys queued for measurement, if any, should be
processed when a custom IMA policy is loaded.

This patch updates the IMA hook function ima_post_key_create_or_update()
to queue the key if a custom IMA policy has not yet been loaded.
And, ima_update_policy() function, which is called when
a custom IMA policy is loaded, is updated to process queued keys.

Sample "key" measurement rule in the IMA policy:

measure func=KEY_CHECK uid=0 keyrings=.ima|.builtin_trusted_keys template=ima-buf

If the kernel is built with one or more built-in trusted certificates,
IMA measurement should list all the keys imported from those certificates.

Display "key" measurement in the IMA measurement list:

cat /sys/kernel/security/ima/ascii_runtime_measurements

10 faf3...e702 ima-buf sha256:27c915b8ddb9fae7214cf0a8a7043cc3eeeaa7539bcb136f8427067b5f6c3b7b .builtin_trusted_keys 308202863082...4aee

Verify "key" measurement data for a key added to ".builtin_trusted_keys" keyring:

cat /sys/kernel/security/integrity/ima/ascii_runtime_measurements | grep -m 1 "\.builtin_trusted_keys" | cut -d' ' -f 6 | xxd -r -p |tee btk-cert.der | sha256sum | cut -d' ' -f 1

The output of the above command should match the template hash
of the first "key" measurement entry in the IMA measurement list for
the key added to ".builtin_trusted_keys" keyring.

The file namely "btk-cert.der" generated by the above command
should be a valid x509 certificate (in DER format) and should match
the one that was used to import the key to the ".builtin_trusted_keys" keyring.
The certificate file can be verified using openssl tool.
