What is the status of potential users of the feature?

I recall that MeeGo were planning to use EVM, but they've since changed
their security plans. Do they still plan to use it? Are any other users
committing to use EVM?

Also -- this was raised some time back, but I can't find the discussion --
what does IMA/EVM provide over disk encryption as a protection against
offline attacks?
