Definitely needed to protect against a sha1 collision attack.

I would prefer not having to allocate and use "nr_allocated_banks + 1"
everywhere, but I understand the need for it.  I'm not sure this patch
warrants allocating +2.  Perhaps, if a TPM bank doesn't exist for the
IMA default hash algorithm, use a different algorithm or, worst case,
continue using the ima_sha1_idx.
