Subject[RFC PATCH v4 12/12] IMA: turn ima_policy_flags into __wr_after_init
Date
The policy flags could be targeted by an attacker aiming at disabling IMA,
so that there would be no trace of a file system modification in the
measurement list.

Since the flags can be altered at runtime, it is not possible to make
them become fully read-only, for example with __ro_after_init.

__wr_after_init can still provide some protection, at least against
simple memory overwrite attacks
