Commit Message

Roberto Sassu June 8, 2021, 12:31 p.m. UTC
The endianness of a variable written to the measurement list cannot be
determined at compile time, as it depends on the value of the
ima_canonical_fmt global variable (set through a kernel option with the
same name if the machine is big endian).

If ima_canonical_fmt is false, the endianness of a variable is the same as
the machine; if ima_canonical_fmt is true, the endianness is little endian.
The warning arises due to this type of instruction:

var = cpu_to_leXX(var)

which tries to assign a value in little endian to a variable with native
endianness (little or big endian).

Given that the variables set with this instruction are not used in any
operation but just written to a buffer, it is safe to force the type of the
value being set to be the same of the type of the variable with:

var = (__force <var type>)cpu_to_leXX(var)
