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

From: Lakshmi Ramasubramanian <nramas@linux.microsoft.com>

Define a new critical data builtin policy to allow measuring
early kernel integrity critical data before a custom IMA policy
is loaded.

Add critical data to built-in IMA rules if the kernel command line
contains "ima_policy=critical_data".

Update the documentation on kernel parameters to document
the new critical data builtin policy.
