There's a major difference between returning just the file hash and
making the integrity_iint_cache structure public. Peter Moody's
original code queried the cache. Why do you need access to the
FYI, if/when we get to IMA namespacing, the cache structure will
 ima: add the ability to query ima for the hash of a given file.
