Currently for soft reboot(kexec_file_load) the kernel file and
signature is measured by IMA. The cmdline args used to load the kernel
is not measured.
The boot aggregate that gets calculated will have no change since the
EFI loader has not been triggered.
Adding the kexec cmdline args measure and kernel version will add some
attestable criteria.

Any reason for including the whole commit message after "---"

Anything after "---" is not included in the patch description when patch is applied.

This comment applies to all the patches in this patchset.
I will fix the comments and send out the patchset with a cover letter. Thankyou for pointing this out.

remove enums to control type of buffers entries, instead pass the event name to be used.

Is the last statement meant to be a Changelog from v1-> v2 ? Only the changelog has to be after "---"

Also, If posting more than one patch, it is preferrable to add a cover-letter.
I will add a cover letter alongside fixing the comments. Thankyou!

Is the v2 version created on top of the v1 version that was posted ?

v2 is based off the HEAD of the repo.
The v2 version has to be on top of the HEAD of the repository itself, and not on the v1 version. Only the final reviewed and tested version makes to the upstream.

Btw, which repository and its branch are you using ?

I am basing my changes off IMA branch:
