From: Alban Crequy <alban at kinvolk.io>

This new fs_type flag FS_IMA_NO_CACHE means files should be re-measured,
re-appraised and re-audited each time. Cached integrity results should
not be used.

It is useful in FUSE because the userspace FUSE process can change the
underlying files at any time without notifying the kernel.
