Currently, IMA adds a measurement entry and an audit log even if access
to the file will be denied when appraisal is in enforce mode. This gives
the false indication to a verifier analyzing the data that file access
occurred. It also has the undesirable effect of unnecessarily revoking
access to TPM-protected objects sealed to PCRs.

Given that a potentially corrupted file will not be accessed by any user
space process, it is safe for the purpose of integrity evaluation to avoid
to record a measurement or audit log in this case.
