Can you please clarify the "motivation" for this patch set more clearly?
It seems to define a policy layer on top of dm-verity, which may be
compiled into the kernel. In the motivation, can you please also make it
explicit why existing mechanisms cannot be extended to achieve your purpose?

Also, AFIK, the changelog should be moved to the end of the patch

Thanks & Regards,
