Thanks, Kees. ÂOther than my comments on the new
security_kernel_post_load_data() hook, the patch set is really nice.

In addition to compiling with CONFIG_IMA_APPRAISE enabled, have you
booted the kernel with the ima_policy=tcb? ÂThe tcb policy will add
measurements to the IMA measurement list and extend the TPM with the
file or buffer data digest. ÂAre you seeing the firmware measurements,
in particular the partial read measurement?
