I know this is pretty late, but I just wanted to let you know that I
tested this patch set on x86_64 with QEMU.

That is, I enrolled a key to _ima keyring, signed my kernel and modules
with appended signatures (with scripts/sign-file), set the IMA policy to
appraise and measure my kernel and modules. Also tested kexec appraisal.

You can add my tested-by if you'd like.
