Before the IMA locking change that were just upstreamed, there were
problems with measuring/appraising files that were opened with the
O_DIRECT flag.  Unless the IMA policy specified permit_directio, the
measurement/appraisal failed.  With the new locking, opening files
with the O_DIRECTIO flag shouldn't be a problem.  It just needs to be
fully tested before removing this code.

On failure, the code below tests the ima_audit_measurement() result
and skips the IMA_PERMIT_DIRECTIO test.  Unless I'm missing something,
I don't see the point.
