SubjectRe: [PATCH v0 2/2] IMA: Call queue functions to measure keys

Please start with the problem description.  For example, measuring
keys requires loading a custom IMA policy.

This reads like pseudo code.  Please summarize the purpose of this
patch.

You're describing a race condition.

The "NOTE" is over commenting the code and belongs in the patch
description.

Overwriting the initial policy is highly recommended, but not everyone
defines a custom policy.  Should there be a time limit or some other
criteria before deleting the key measurement queue?
