[PATCH 0/3] kexec: limit kexec_load syscall

In environments that require the kexec kernel image to be signed, prevent
using the kexec_load syscall.  In order for LSMs and IMA to differentiate
between kexec_load and kexec_file_load syscalls, this patch set adds a
call to security_kernel_read_file() in kexec_load_check().

  ima: based on the "secure_boot" policy limit syscalls
  kexec: call LSM hook for kexec_load syscall
  ima: based on policy require signed kexec kernel images
