The idea is a good idea, but you're assuming that "result" is always
errno.  That was probably true originally, but isn't now.  For
example, ima_appraise_measurement() calls xattr_verify(), which
compares the security.ima hash with the calculated file hash.  On
failure, it returns the result of memcmp().  Each and every code path
will need to be checked.
