We can fail hibernation if userland hasn't flagged things, but the
concern is that if you hibernate with PCR 23 blocking enabled and then
reboot with the blocking disabled, userland can obtain the blob from the
hibernation image, extend PCR 23, modify the image and use the key
they've recovered to make it look legitimate, enable PCR 23 blocking
again and then resume into their own code.
