I'm a bit hesitant about mixing the module subsystem signature
verification method with the IMA measure "template=ima-modsig" rules.
 Does it actually work?

We can at least limit verifying the same appended signature twice to
when "module.sig_enforce" is specified on the boot command line, by
changing "!IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_MODULE_SIG)" to test
"CONFIG_MODULE_SIG_FORCE".
