When EVM_ALLOW_METADATA_WRITES is set, EVM allows any operation on
metadata. Its main purpose is to allow users to freely set metadata when it
is protected by a portable signature, until an HMAC key is loaded.

However, callers of evm_verifyxattr() are not notified about metadata
changes and continue to rely on the last status returned by the function.
For example IMA, since it caches the appraisal result, will not call again
evm_verifyxattr() until the appraisal flags are cleared, and will grant
access to the file even if there was a metadata operation that made the
portable signature invalid.

This patch introduces evm_status_revalidate(), which callers of
evm_verifyxattr() can use in their xattr hooks to determine whether
re-validation is necessary and to do the proper actions. IMA calls it in
its xattr hooks to reset the appraisal flags, so that the EVM status is
re-evaluated after a metadata operation.

Lastly, this patch also adds a call to evm_reset_status() in
evm_inode_post_setattr() to invalidate the cached EVM status after a
setattr operation.

I'm really  sorry for the patch churn, but could you rename
evm_status_revalidate() to evm_revalidate_status().

Otherwise,
