SubjectRe: [PATCH v5 2/2] powerpc: Add support to initialize ima policy rules
Date
Hi Nayna,

Some more comments below.

Again this is just a design choice we've made, it's not specified
anywhere or anything like that. And it only applies to bare metal secure
boot, at least so far. AIUI.

It's probably worth mentioning that we intend to use this in our
Linux-based boot loader, which uses kexec, and that's one of the reasons
why we're particularly interested in defining the rules for kexec?

The rules above seem fairly self explanatory.

But these ones are not so obvious, at least to me who knows very little
about IMA.

Can you add a one line comment to each of the ones in here saying what
it does and why we want it?

Why? Just because we think it's useful? Would be good to provide some
further justification.
