Prior to IMA being upstreamed, we used mtime to determine when a file
changed.  At that time, Andrew Morton suggested using i_version.  Is
there a specific filesystem that you are interested in that doesn't
have i_version support?

Assuming there is a valid reason for adding this support, the check
should be based on mtime, not ctime.  ctime includes file metadata
changes, not only file data changes, which would result in re-
calculating the file hash unnecessarily.
