[PATCH] lockdown: fix coordination of kernel module signature verification




If both IMA-appraisal and sig_enforce are enabled, then both signatures
are currently required.  If the IMA-appraisal signature verification
fails, it could rely on the appended signature verification; but with the
lockdown patch set, the appended signature verification assumes that if
IMA-appraisal is enabled, it has verified the signature.  Basically each
signature verification method would be relying on the other to verify the
kernel module signature.

This patch addresses the problem of requiring both kernel module signature
verification methods, when both are enabled, by verifying just the
appended signature.
