So?

It's under security/integrity. And it's a level of detail that fs/inode.c
really doesn't care about.

The VFS layer cares NOT AT ALL about your "different aspects of security",
nor should it. The fact that security people think SELinux and IMA are
different is irrelavant - fs/inode.c just doesn't care. Why should it?
