[PATCH v3 6/7] selftests/ima: loading kernel modules

While the appended kernel module signature can be verified, when loading
a kernel module via either the init_module or the finit_module syscall,
verifying the IMA signature requires access to the file descriptor,
which is only available via the finit_module syscall.  As "modprobe"
does not provide a flag allowing the syscall - init_module or
finit_module - to be specified, this patch does not load a kernel
module.

This test simply verifies that on secure boot enabled systems with
"CONFIG_IMA_ARCH_POLICY" configured, that at least an appended kernel
module signature or an IMA signature is required based on the Kconfig
and the runtime IMA policy.
