BTW, in IMA I see you have the hash algorithm as a boot parameter. I
guess it makes sense there because it works implicitly in the
background?

Sealing a trusted key is an explicit operation. That's why I thought
it'd be better to have it as an option for the syscall. Does this logic
make sense to your or not?
