SubjectRe: [PATCH] integrity: add ima_counts_put (updated)
Date

Although I have no objection for this fix, I'd like to suggest you to
stop incrementing the counters in ima_path_check().
A while ago IMA_COUNT_LEAVE and ima_counts_get() were introduced, and
now ima_counts_put() appears.
Isn't it easier something like this,
- stop incrementing in ima_path_check().
- call ima_counts_get() in dentry_open() (or similar).
- delete IMA_COUNT_LEAVE/UPDATE and ima_counts_put().

How do you think?
