Series IMA: support for measuring kernel integrity critical data | expand

IMA provides capabilities to measure file data, and in-memory buffer
data. However, various data structures, policies, and states
stored in kernel memory also impact the integrity of the system.
Several kernel subsystems contain such integrity critical data. These
kernel subsystems help protect the integrity of a device. Currently,
IMA does not provide a generic function for kernel subsystems to measure
their integrity critical data.
 
Define a new IMA hook - ima_measure_critical_data to measure kernel
integrity critical data.
