The patch implementing modsig support will retry verifying the xattr
signature if the modsig verification fails, and if we have already passed
the modsig as the xattr_value we'll have problems if we pass the xattr sig
in the second call to evm_verifyxattr.

Since this is an optimization and not actually required, just don't do it.
