Or the following change looks better? What's your opinion?

static int
kimage_validate_signature(struct kimage *image)
{
int ret;

ret = arch_kexec_kernel_verify_sig(image, image->kernel_buf,
image->kernel_buf_len);
if (ret) {

if (IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_KEXEC_SIG_FORCE)) {
pr_notice("Enforced kernel signature verification failed (%d).\n", ret);
return ret;
}

/*
* If IMA is guaranteed to appraise a signature on the kexec
* image, permit it even if the kernel is otherwise locked
* down.
*/
if (!ima_appraise_signature(READING_KEXEC_IMAGE) &&
security_locked_down(LOCKDOWN_KEXEC))
return -EPERM;

pr_debug("kernel signature verification failed (%d).\n", ret);
}

return 0;
}


Thanks.
