Ok, got your point. still something could be improved though, in the switch
chunk, the errno, reason and IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_KEXEC_SIG_FORCE) etc is
not necessary for this -EPERM case.

/* add some comment to describe the behavior */
if (ret && security_is_locked_down(LOCKDOWN_KEXEC)) {
ret = -EPERM;
goto out;
}
