'ima-modsig' was not in the list of selectable templates in Kconfig.
The missing Kconfig options were added to support the ima-modsig
template as default template.

Since 'ima-modsig' is only needed for appended signatures (e.g. kexec
kernel image on powerpc, kernel modules) a per policy rule "template="
option was defined.  There's also the 'ima_template=' boot command line
option.   Between these two options, I didn't see the need for making
it a build time default option.  Do you?

The patch itself looks good. 

thanks,

Mimi

The use-case I had in mind was a simple measured boot,
no user-space applications, only to measure already signed modules
which are already signed by modsig
using a single policy line:

measure func=MODULE_CHECK

I thought for this purpose, we could just compile in the default
template to be modsig but it wasn't
selectable.

I have overlooked the policy rule "template=",
In the above use-case, it also just works to set the policy:

measure func=MODULE_CHECK template=ima-modsig

So, your are right maybe that is not necessary.

Michael
