I know that will validate the module properly, but that is not what I’m 
trying to solve here. I thought the point of adding “|modsig” to the
ima policy was to tell ima it can either validate against an ima keyring OR 
default back to the kernel keyring.  This is what happens with the compressed
module.  There isn’t anything in the ima keyring to validate the compressed
modules and it loads when I add “|modsig”.

The use case I’m trying to solve is when someone boots with ima_policy=secure_boot.
If their initramfs contains compressed modules with appended signatures the
system boots.  If they use the same ima policy with an initramfs that contains
uncompressed modules, it doesn't boot.  I thought the point of adding “|modsig”
was to help with the initramfs problem, since it is difficult to ima sign
things within it.
