Not having a file hash is rather common (e.g. mknodat, prior to the
file being closed). Before appraising the integrity of a file, it
checks whether it is a new file (eg. IMA_NEW_FILE), but, unfortunately,
the flag is only set for those files in the appraise policy.

The patch looks fine, but you might want to reflect not having a file
hash is common in the patch description.
