[PATCH 2/3] kexec: call LSM hook for kexec_load syscall




Allow LSMs and IMA to differentiate between the kexec_load and
kexec_file_load syscalls by adding an "unnecessary" call to
security_kernel_read_file() in kexec_load.  This would be similar to the
existing init_module syscall calling security_kernel_read_file().
