[PATCH v6 2/5] ima: prevent kexec_load syscall based on runtime secureboot flag

From: Nayna Jain <nayna at linux.ibm.com>

When CONFIG_KEXEC_VERIFY_SIG is enabled, the kexec_file_load syscall
requires the kexec'd kernel image to be signed. Distros are concerned
about totally disabling the kexec_load syscall. As a compromise, the
kexec_load syscall will only be disabled when CONFIG_KEXEC_VERIFY_SIG
is configured and the system is booted with secureboot enabled.

This patch disables the kexec_load syscall only for systems booted with
secureboot enabled.
