I don't have kernel_is_locked_down() but I found it here:

https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/dhowells/linux-fs.git/commit/?h=keys-lockdown&id=0ff5adf1e81135c4ed914d0a8b70124caed04142

1) I don't see it taking any arguments
2) Don't we want:

if (!is_ima_appraise_enabled() && kernel_is_locked_down())
return -EACCES;

If, only if IMA appraisal is enabled would we enable kernel lockdown.
