If CONFIG_MODULE_SIG is enabled but module signatures aren't enforced,
then IMA won't enforce module signature either. x86's
arch_get_ima_policy() calls set_module_sig_enforced(). Doesn't the
powerpc version need to do that as well?

On the flip side, if module signatures are enforced by the module
subsystem then IMA will verify the signature a second time since there's
no sharing of signature verification results between the module
subsystem and IMA (this was observed by Mimi).

IMHO this is a minor issue, since module loading isn't a hot path and
the duplicate work shouldn't impact anything. But it could be avoided by
having a NULL entry in arch_rules, which arch_get_ima_policy() would
dynamically update with the "appraise func=MODULE_CHECK" rule if
is_module_sig_enforced() is true.
