Ok, it was an expekted NACK :)
Suddenly right now i don't have good ide to solve it. IMA just won't to
know if some runtime changes was made to FS. Currently i can image
fallowing variants:
- rework IMA
- add MS_I_TEMP_VERSION and keep i_version using for it.
- add new variable for external use only. For example: ima_rt_i_version,
or some thing like this.

Other ideas?
