The ordering of this patch set is awkward. ÂIt should first introduce
a generic method for measuring keys based on the keyring. ÂThen add
the additional support needed for the specific builtin_trusted_keys
keyring usecase.

Would the following ordering of the patch set be acceptable:

=> PATCH 0/5: Cover letter

=> PATCH 1/5: Define the enum "hook(BUILTIN_TRUSTED_KEYS)" in ima.h

=> PATCH 2/5: Define ima hook
This will initially do nothing if ima is not yet
Call process_buffer_measurement() if ima is initialized.

=> PATCH 3/5: key_create_or_update change and the call to ima hook

=> PATCH 4/5: Queue\De-Queue of key measurement requests.
Enable queuing of key in the ima hook if ima is not

=> PATCH 5/5: ima policy to enable measurement of keys which will
enable end-to-end working of this feature.
